Private Screening of HBO Documentarty "Sergio" based on the U.N. High Commissioner Sergio Vieira de Mello


Chamber member José da Cruz has kindly helped organize a special screening of the HBO Documentary “Sergio”, based on the U.N High Commissioner Sergio Vieira de Mello, for Chamber members only.  The Screening will take place on Tuesday, November 16th, from 6:00pm - 8:00pm at the following location:
The Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce, Inc
509 Madison Avenue
Suite 304
New York, NY 10022   

The Chamber, which has not seen the film and will not issue any opinion on the content, would like to offer this as a unique cultural event for our members.  The screening will be limited to 25 attendees on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Please respond to this email (membership@brazilcham.com) to reserve your seat.

(The documentary, produced by Greg Barker and based on Samantha Power’s powerful biography “Chasing the Flame”, focuses on the life and death of this dashing, high-minded Brazilian, who was the first United Nations envoy to negotiate with Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge, served in Bosnia and Croatia during their dark days, and helped East Timor establish itself as an independent democracy.  De Mello passed away on August 19, 2003, when a massive truck bomb exploded directly beneath his office at the UN headquarters in Baghdad, where he was leading the UN mission to Iraq.)

Best wishes,

Janine Hirt
