Augusto Mallmann

Award-winning Brazilian-Australian film director with a minimalist, seductive and often humorous aesthetic.

Augusto Mallmann is a Latino-Australian director whose works include National Geographic Cosmos Interstitials with Ann Druyan, DZ Deathrays: Like People, The Relentless Series with Anna Meares, and A Private Session.

His music video ‘Like People’ was nominated Australian Music Video of the Year at the J Awards 2018, as well as ranked #2 at Rage FIFTY 2018, only behind Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’.

Raised in the Digital Age of cinema, Guss took an alternative approach to most filmmakers at the time, learning to shoot and edit in celluloid film, having mastered the use of Steenbecks and 16 and 35mm cinema cameras.

Guss's directing style can be described as carrying numerous underlying layers of interpretation, carried through a minimalist, seductive, and often humorous aesthetic.

His productions have been picked by several film festivals worldwide, as well as seen by audiences in the tens of millions.

In his spare time, Guss loves to travel, play music, paint and collect vintage lenses.
