Pedro Belchior Costa
Qualified by renowned professionals of the European, English and American film industry, Pedro had its foundation built alongside professionals nominated to Oscars, Baftas, Golden Globes and prizes at Cannes. Besides being a director and screenwriter, he also has a graduation degree in Law and a master degree on intellectual property. That is why his performances as lawyer, university professor and international researcher earned him the title of Laki’s “multitasker”.
Among his most recent works, he wrote and directed the short films "Sweet Morning" (New York) and "Lu" (Rio) and the documentary “Beyond Pink" (São Paulo). Pedro also co-directed his first feature film, "The Deep Voice of the Violin" (shot in China), and he has been the director of an internet channel with more than 5 million followers. Most recently he collaborated with a couple of Multishow's tv shows and has been writing and directing films in Brazil and abroad.
So after living in the “Old Continent” and in the “Big Apple”, Pedro returned to Brazil to found Laki Films and follow his calling to tell stories in national and international co-productions.
Today Pedro is Director, Screenwriter and Partner of Laki.
