In Families of Brazil, we meet Louisa who lives with her brother, grandmother, mother and father on their farm in the rolling countryside inland from Rio, where her father grows vegetables and cattle. Louisa's mother drives the children each day to their school in the nearest city 50 miles away, where she teaches ballet. When they're home, the children entertain themselves by roller blading and bicycling, watching TV and playing video games. While Louisa's brother plays in his tree house, Louisa learns the words to a song by the Spice Girls. Luca and his family live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Luca and his brother love soccer, Brazil's national sport, and they watch their Dad's amateur team play and practice. We meet Luca's grandparents, who take care of Luca and his brother after school, and visit the statue of Christ, high above the city of Rio de Janeiro. The Families of the World Series takes you on a fantastic journey to another country where you view the unique lives of two children and their families. Each program focuses on a different culture, their way of life, family interaction, foods and even celebrations. Join us in our visit to the countryside, cities, communities, schools and homes of two families—from breakfast to bedtime and all the fun-filled activities in between. This highly acclaimed series has been broadcast on Public Television.
