It has been my greatest pleasure to organize the initial structure of this project which started three years ago. I had a vision for a
cinematic project that would not only entertain, but also inform. MOSTRA brings the real Brazil to America and is quickly becoming a
valuable asset to our cross cultural relationship.
MOSTRA IV: Brazilian Film Series will be presented again in the Midwest in November 2013. MOSTRA IV intends to promote a
greater understanding of the Brazilian culture and its social issues through film. Discussions with renowned Brazilian Directors will be
presented, making it an educational, interactive and unforgettable experience for all who participate.
I look forward to meeting with you to discuss how we can work together in order to meet our goals of promoting educational and
cultural knowledge through film.
Please consider coming on board and sharing the opportunity of creating a mutually rewarding relationship with a US/Brazil non-
profit organization. I am available at the number and e-mail below. Come and join us in this year’s adventure, discovering the inside
of Brazilian life. You can help others take a vacation to a land that is not far away anymore. Insights come from the strangest of
places. In film is culture; in culture is understanding, understanding opens markets as well as minds.
