Understood is on a mission to empower the parents of the 1 in 5 children and young adults with learning and attention issues in the US, to understand their issues and relate to their experiences.

I have produced, shot and edited short documentaries that highlight personal stories of young adults who have struggled and learned to cope with learning and attention issues.

Roberto Drilea is a director, editor and DP, working in documentary and fiction, film and VR, creating experiences that aim to reflect human complexity.

His work has been presented at film festivals including the Cannes Short Film Corner, Sundance and SXSW. He has done work for institutions and publications including: The Public Theater, The Atlantic, CNN Style, Northwestern University, Storyhunter and the Big Ten Network.

Most recently, Roberto was selected as one of ten filmmakers in the Facebook/Oculus VR For Good program, where he worked with an LA-based nonprofit to create a virtual reality musical in collaboration with young artists on the autism spectrum.


Born and raised in Romania, he is a graduate of Northwestern University and currently lives in Brooklyn, working as a freelance director, cinematographer and editor, under his newly founded production banner, Pixel & Rhyme.
