I am, now, working as producer for God Save America 101, a feature documentary about Brazilian immigration in Massachusetts.
Also, I am writing 2 documentary projects with friends and partners:
- “Megacity searching for a healthy life”: a TV Series about Urban Ecology in these huge metropolitan areas. Taking New York, São Paulo and Paris as illustration, the series will show ecological initiatives in the middle of these megacities. Our goal is to demonstrate that sustainability is compatible with a busy life style and inspire people to take simple sustainable actions in their daily life.
- “What are we educating our children for?”: A documentary on our actual education system and its alternatives. An overview of our education model, where it comes from, its gaps and the alternatives.
In addition to that I work as volunteer producing videos for the Peoples’s Summit at Rio+20. The People Summit is an event organized by global civil society that claims for Social and Environmental Justice. The summit will take place between the 15th and the 23rd of June, in Rio de Janeiro – alongside the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD), Rio+20.
