Over the next several weeks I am going to try and dig up some information on each one of the members of the HFPA and share that information with you, the readers who are spread across this vast globe. I am beginning with Paoula Abou-Japude from Brazil who was given the prestigious International Media Award by IATSE last year, and is the Executive Producer of the film Olhar Estrangeiro which describes fantasies and clichés about Brazil and Brazilians as reinforced by international films, even those actually shot in Brazil. This documentary features interviews with non-Brazilian directors, writers and stars who have been involved in some of those films including Michael Caine, Jon Voight and Hope Davis. I encourage you to view the film and to pass along to Paoula at the HFPA just how much you loved the film. He can be e-mailed at [email protected] While you are writing you may want to tell them about the site and that giving this site access to the red carpet and media room at the Golden Globes is brilliant.
For those of you reading this in Brazil, or from Brazil please send any e-mails to Paoula in Portuguese. Of course those of you in Portugal could probably get away with some mischief also. Don't be shy.
