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 feature film M.F.A., a thriller centered around rape crimes in a college campus, starring Francesca Eastwood, premiered at SXSW where it was nominated for a Grand Jury Prize and a Game Changer Award. Her directorial debut BARE, starring Dianna Agron, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and was released by IFC Films and Paramount Pictures.  Natalia also directs TV episodes, most recently THE HANDMAID’S TALE on Hulu and MINX on HBO Max. Aside from her narrative work, she has created original content for Vice TV, documenting and immersing herself in female centric worlds. Expanding the conversation beyond her films, Natalia discusses identity, sexuality, and representation in op-eds for TalkHouse.
