Brazilian Families in New Orleans

Family is important to Brazilian society. One of the hardships of emigrating to the United States is that Brazilians do not get to see their family very often. The cost and difficulty in travelling to Brazil means visits between families do not happen very often. Max Pattsner and Katie Field talk with Brazilian immigrants in New Orleans about the importance of family. Produced in spring 2014 in conjunction with Advanced Portuguese through Film, taught by Prof. Annie Gibson, and the Center for Public Service. 8:05.
