CouchSurfing Documentary filming in Porto Alegre!!!
Posted June 30th, 2011 - 6:11 pm by from Tampa, United States (Permalink)
Olá fellow CSers!

I have been posting on several boards throughout the country about a CouchSurfing documentary we are filming in Brasil during the month of August 2011 (check it out: http://www.onecouchatatime.com/). The response from the Brasilian community has been overwhelming and we are so humbled and appreciative of your enthusiasm and support for this project!

My producer, Alexandra, and I will be flying into Rio on August 10th and making our through Sao Paulo and eventually on to Buenos Aires. We will be traveling by bus and are looking for interesting places to stop along the way.

I've heard that Porto Alegre is a beautiful place and would be great for this project. We are hoping to find other CSers to host, translate, or show us around town when we get there. Do you know anyone interesting we can stay with?

Our mission for the documentary:
- We are looking for interesting examples of love and relationships in Brasil, something that may be unique to your culture or a unique situation.
- We are also looking to explore the rich spiritual side of Brasil (shamans, "spiritism", Candomblé, Umbandista, healings, ghosts, near death experiences, etc.). Do you know of any interesting places to visit along this route?
- MOST IMPORTANT!!! We are looking for INTERESTING COUCHSURFERS! What does CouchSurfing mean to you and how are you using it to fulfill your path in life?

We'd love to hear from you and we love how much the Brasilian community is eager to participate!!!

Muito obrigado,
