 Brazilian-American filmmaker Luisa Dantas has worked on a wide array of documentary and narrative projects in the U.S. and Brazil. Her most recent project, Land of Opportunity, chronicles the reconstruction of New Orleans through the eyes of those on the frontlines and asks the question: what kinds of cities do we want to (re)build in the 21st century? The transmedia project includes an award-winning feature film and interactive web platform  produced in conjunction with a spectrum of national and local partners in six cities. Luisa has also written for the animated series Go, Diego, Go! for Nickelodeon Television. She teaches screenwriting and place-based storytelling at Tulane University.
