Colegas (Buddies) tells the story of three young people with Down syndrome who love movies and work at the video library of the institution where they have always lived in. One day, inspired by the film “Thelma & Louise”, they decide to run away using the gardener’s old car to have a freedom experience. They travel to uncommon places in search for three simple wishes: Stalone wants to see the sea, Aninha looks for a husband and Marcio needs to fly. During this search, they embark on several adventures as if life was just a children’s play.

Partners of the Americas and MOSTRA: Brazilian Film Series

MOSTRA VI: Brazilian Film Series is a Partners of the Americas cultural and educational project, which is presenting over 20 Brazilian films in 2015. Those are full length feature and documentaries, and short fiction, documentaries, and animations.MOSTRA’s purpose is to present Brazilian films with social contents and subjects common to Brazil as well as the United States, shown through the Brazilian cinematographic lens. MOSTRA is presented in most of the prestigious universities in the states of Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. These institutions of higher education sponsor our event due to the educational content, ideal for discussions with university students, teachers and the public in general.
Partners of the Americas mission is to work together as citizen volunteers from Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States to improve the lives of people across the western hemisphere. The Illinois-Sao Paulo partnership is one of the 120 chapters and 60 partnerships. Our projects have included a major Architecture Symposium on Sustainable Architecture in 2010, a Fruit Tree planning project that saw the planting of 400 fruit trees at schools in Chicago and in rural Sao Paulo, and professional exchanges to share best practices in Music Education, Occupational Therapy, Green Technology, and more. Past success also included the Paranapiacaba project in 2009 that sent a team of architects and urban planners from Chicago to work with local government officials to create a sustainability plan for this impoverished Brazilian town.
