Angela K. Pires has been working with films for longer than her vanity allows her to say. Finding a story hidden behind hours and hours of footage is her most cherished talent, so documentaries are her specialty. THE PRISON AND THE STREET ("Elegantly shot and extremely well-structured documentary... impressive." - Variety), TRASH DANCE (“Magical” – The New York Times), and 61 BULLETS are some of them. But her experience goes beyond documentaries and includes narrative films, online content and commercials.  Her work has been screened in festivals around the globe: Berlin Film Festival, SXSW, Lincoln Center’s New Directors/New Films, AFI Docs, Full Frame, Rotterdam, Havana, and That’s All True among many others.
