Director: Hugo L. V. e Oliveira
Director Biography: Hugo L. V. e Oliveira is a brazilian screenwriter and director based in São Paulo. A college dropout, now he has different projects with different partners in the audiovisual world, that range from shorts to webseries and features, always focusing on manageable budgets, sharp dialogue and a strong narrative.
Director Statement: “Ok, Karen” is a short film made in a shoestring budget, shot in twelve hours with a group of partners, that came from a true necessity of telling a different brand of story in a pandemic scenary. The pandemy, COVID-19, is ever present in the short, but above all, the technology dependency, the mental state of oneself and the state of paranoia, is what attracted us the most on such a project.
