Brazil - Projeto Sorria (Project Smile)


A social/cultural project to increase the access to Chaplin’s work to every social class of Brazilian school children.

A group of Chaplin enthusiasts has decided to take Charlie to school. The response has been overwhelmingly positive and it is lovely to hear that Chaplin films still delight children of all nationalities.

The organisers have prepared a video of one of the first Sao Paolo school visits in the hope of gaining sponsorship to buy projectors and other materials.
