According to The Harvard Crimson, “Dan Sousa is not a typical animator. Instead of creating films with strong narrative structure and central characters, he prefers to captivate his audience with an immediate visceral reaction.”
A Providence-based film-maker Daniel Sousa – born in Cape Verde and raised in Portugal – moved to the United States in 1986. He studied illustration and painting at Rhode Island School of Design where he has been teaching since 2001.
He also taught at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, has produced short films, and worked in commercial projects for which he was awarded by the LEF Foundation to and Creative Capital Foundation.
