by Gabi Lisboa

May 2, 2023

Hailing from Brazil, Gabi Lisboa is known for her diverse skillset and expertise in multiple disciplines. After studying Fashion and Performing Arts she became a content creator on Instagram in 2018. At just 25 years old, she has already made a name for herself as a director, creative director, analog photographer and Instagram creator in the audiovisual field.
In addition to her individual work, Gabi is also a co-owner of GAFE Films, a boutique firm based in São Paulo that specializes in creating music videos for independent artists from the LGBTQIA+ community and developing content for various brands. For this Weekly Takeover, Gabi chose the theme Saudade. Here’s the description that she gives us about it:

Saudade is an abstract noun, an untranslatable Portuguese term that refers to the melancholic longing or yearning. It refers to a sense of loneliness and incompleteness, but not always in a bad way. We can feel saudade and feel complete at the same time, sometimes it's a feeling that contemplates other feelings and makes things make sense. We can feel saudade for a person, a place, a dish, a memory, another feeling, for the way we felt someday, or even for something that might have never happened. For everything. We can kill saudade, for a while, but it always comes back.
