Agua Viva Pictures was founded with the aim to bring more stories from the female gaze. 


Renata Gheller, founder

Giulia Lopes-Mazzu

Writer, Producer

Giulia is a screenwriter and producer based in London. She has written and produced two short films, Right Time and Tell Me Why I Miss You. Giulia comes from a multicultural and multilingual upbringing, and she often reflects this in her work. Before starting work as a filmmaker, she came from a legal background and is also the Founder and Director of the collective for Latinx women, Latin Girls At Work.

Renata and Giulia connected over their nationality but also their desire to bring their multicultural and unconventional upbringings into their films. As Latin American filmmakers, they aim to bring original stories to life and give more opportunities to Latin American cast and crew into their productions.
