Credo Nonfiction is thrilled to begin 2022 by welcoming filmmaker Sergio Rapu to the company’s director roster. A native Rapanui director and producer, Sergio has spent 15 years creating documentary specials and series for the likes of National Geographic, PBS and Discovery. His award-winning directorial debut, EATING UP EASTER (2020), was recently broadcast on PBS’s Independent Lens and highlights the kind of social and environmental impact storytelling Sergio excels at creating.

“Credo Nonfiction was founded on the belief that nonfiction storytelling has the power to change our world for the better. Sergio proves this concept with everything he creates while also being a delightful human to collaborate with. We’re tremendously excited to get him at the helm of multiple network and brand projects in 2022,” said Credo Nonfiction founder Jesse Roesler.

As one of the only native Rapanui working in documentary film, Sergio seeks to foster BIPOC stories and storytellers while creating thought-provoking media that highlights the complexity of life to inspire resolutions to social, economic, and environmental conflicts.

“If the pandemic has shown me anything, it’s that I need to surround myself with like-minded individuals in order to move mountains. I’m incredibly excited to join forces with Jesse and the powerhouse team at Credo in using stories to advance a just and sustainable world.” said Sergio
