Cassio Tolpolar has been awarded with the Asylum Arts Grant to work on a short documentary about the Philippson colony, the first organized Jewish immigration to Brazil, in 1904. See some pictures here!
Cassio Tolpolar's short 'A Trip to Philippson' was recently selected to be part of The Yud Video Project at The Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, California.
The five minute video is part of a documentary work in progress dedicated to understanding the first organized Jewish immigration to Brazil, which was carried out by the Jewish Colonization Association in 1904. In this documentary, Tolpolar researches and explores this history by focusing on the colony’s cemetery that is presently being renovated.
This project was supported by Asylum Arts.
