MOSTRA: Brazilian Film Series & Illinois São Paulo Partners

MOSTRA Brazilian Film Series: Founded by Ariani Friedl in 2010, the annual event is presented by the Illinois - São Paulo Chapter of Partners of the Americas, and has as its motto: "Brazilian Films with a Social Conscience." MOSTRA screens movies in educational and cultural institutions in the greater Chicago area and other cities in the Midwest to foster conversations about social issues, culture, politics, history and the environment among the academic community, filmmakers, and socially conscious individuals. www.mostrafilmseries.org
  
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. www.partners.net
