Cacau Araujo (b. 1988, Aracaju) is a Brazilian filmmaker based in New York.

My work revolves around places, memory, and identity. Eager to find uniqueness in the mundane, I infuse my films with genuine curiosity and humor. My filmmaking is rooted in the importance of care, community, and enchantment in everyday wonder. My debut short, The Great Find (2022) was selected for DOC NYC, Arena Theater Short Film Festival, a finalist best student documentary at NYIFA, and broadcast on Bronxnet TV. I was featured at PBS/Thirteen as a "Rising Artist". I hold a degree in Documentary Media Studies from The New School, where I was awarded the Deanna Kamiel Fellowship. Currently, I am a proud film fellow at the Bronx Documentary Center.
