Intertwining languages ranging from classic documentary to video art, Carlos Nader is above all an essayist. Among his main themes are the question of identity, the sensation of time, and the relationship of man to the camera in an extremely mediatized age. His videos were shown at cultural centers in more than 20 countries (such as MOMA in 1999, Guggenheim in 2001, Stedelijk and Tate Modern in 2007) and broadcasted on more than a dozen major international TV channels (such as English Channel 4 and the Franco-German ARTE). Among the awards he received are the Mondial de la Video de Bruxelles (1993), the Internationaler Videokunstpreis of ZKM (1998) in Germany, the Grand Prix of Cinema Brazil for Best Video (2000), the Special Jury Prize of APCA Paulista dos Críticos de Arte) (2008), Best Short Film Award at the Festivals of Havana and Paulínia (2012). He is the only documentary filmmaker to have won the It’s All True, the most important Brazilian documentary festival three times (2009, 2014 and 2015).
