I moved from the United States to Brazil around 15 years ago. What initially motivated me to do this was a movie I’d seen thirty years previously, if you can believe that! I knew nothing about Brazilian culture at that time, but when I saw the film “Black Orpheus” back in 1960, I immediately felt that it was “my” culture. How is this possible?
1) What makes a person leave their country of birth and live in another country?
2) People sometimes even leave family behind to start a new life in another country. Is it possible to love a place more than a person?
3) Lots of people like to travel and visit other places. What’s different about a person who never wants to go home?
4) How can a person not feel “at home” in the country where they were born?
