INTERVIEW: Feminist and Post-Apocalyptic Hero, Luciana Faulhaber

One of my favorite things about going to a convention is meeting new people. Last year while I was having a drink at the Wired Cafe during San Diego Comic Con I met a woman named Luciana Faulhaber. Luciana is an educated actor, writer, and producer who’s journey from Brazil to Los Angeles is like a movie itself. At the time we discussed the importance of female empowerment in the world and in the media, and how to this day it is still an issue that needs to be discussed. Needless to say, we hit it off. We’ve kept in touch since then, and now Luciana is working on a project that not only highlights this important issue, but to put it simply, sounds really cool!

In this interview Luciana talks about her journey from Brazil, to New York, to Los Angeles, her motivations for becoming an actor, female empowerment in front of and behind the camera, breaking gender stereotypes, and an upcoming post-apocalyptic project, Willow Creek. Not only is Luciana a thoughtful and intelligent artist, but definitely someone to keep an eye on.

So I started changing my own life.
