The topic of this documentary is an informative investigation of Brazilian immigrants who have moved to Ireland in the last fifteen years. There have been a number of studies regarding international migration and migration in different countries, such as Ireland. Research in the field has shown what motives immigrants have to leave their home country, including, conflicts, economic reasons, and social networks in the destination country. Despite the existent studies on migration, there is still a lack of information to explain why a large influx of Brazilian nationals has moved to Ireland. Therefore, by using video recordings, the 13- minute video documentary describes how five immigrants decided to leave Brazil in the pursuit of a better or just a different life in Ireland. The video reveals what the immigrants expected to encounter before travelling to Ireland and how their lives have changed since they arrived in the country. What emerges is an engaging story that shows similar views shared by the characters regarding the purpose of migrating from Brazil to Ireland and what challenges they have faced throughout the years, including language barrier, studies, and search for employment. Brazilian Immigrants in Ireland: A Bridge Connecting Two Worlds presents an insight into the compelling journey of immigrants who left everything behind to start a new life but who have not forgotten their roots living in a new world.
