Subject: Looking for Yiddish speaking actors

I`m a brazilian producer-actor-director who is producing a movie on Jewish 
immigration from Tzarist Russia( Bessarabia) to Brazil, in 1904. Supported 
by JCA - Jewish Colonization Association, they founded the 
firstorganizated agricultural colony in Brazil, called Philippson Colony.

The movie will be shot in Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul State, next year.

I`m trying to find some Yiddish-speaking actors (30-40y.o) and children 
(about 12, before Bar), both sex.

If you want to know more about the movie and his characters or if you 
could help me please contact me.

Thanks a lot,

Jose de Abreu
