NATALIA LEITE is a Brazilian writer/director. Her work has been described as having “a bracing, assertive style” (Variety), “emotional intelligence” (LA Times), and as “cementing the reign over highly stylized, sexually progressive dramas” (Slate).

Her indie thriller, M.F.A., starring Francesca Eastwood, premiered at SXSW where it was nominated for a Grand Jury Prize and a Game Changer Award, and went on to fuel discussions at the start of the #MeToo movement. She has directed episodes of THE HANDMAID’S TALE, among other TV series, and her scripts have been optioned by Warner Bros., Participant Media, and Anonymous Content. Prior to working in scripted content, Natalia created documentaries for Vice TV by immersing herself in different subcultures —among a group of train-hoppers in the midwest and as a truck-stop stripper in New Mexico— as a form of first-person investigative storytelling. 

Most recently Natalia directed the pilot for the upcoming Hulu series BLACK CAKE, created by Marisa Jo Cerar, executive produced by Oprah Winfrey and Aaron Kaplan, based on a New York Times bestselling book.
