Called a "rising star" by Variety, Vicente Amorim is currently showrunner and director of SENNANetflix’s biggest and most ambitious series ever in Latin America.

Vicente's latest film, YAKUZA PRINCESS, an action-adventure feature starring Masumi and Jonathan Rhys Meyers was the #1 film on Netflix Brazil and #5 on Netflix worldwide for several weeks (including English-language). His motorcycle slasher MOTORRAD became an instant cult-classic and was the only Brazilian film in the official selection of Toronto, 2017.

He also served as showrunner and  director on crime-thriller series THE DIVISION, set against the kidnapping outbreak that shook Rio de Janeiro in the late 90’s. The show was a massive hit on streamer Globoplay, having been nominated by Brazil's major critics' association for the best series, director and actor awards. THE DIVISION's feature version was nominated in 8 categories by the Brazilian Academy, including best film and best director. (Vicente's films have over 25 nominations at the Brazilian Academy). Vicente's other TV credits include female driven dark comedy/anthology As Canalhas (GNT), which was imported to the U.S. as a development vehicle for producer Ben Stiller and Hulu and the neo-noir Espinosa, based on a favorite of Brazilian crime literature.


The son of a diplomat, Vicente grew up all over the world. He speaks fluent English, Portuguese, Spanish and French. Vicente lives in LA with his wife, Anne Pinheiro Guimaraes, and two daughters.
