This road-show gastronomic series is a television series hosted by the famous Brazilian chef Bel Coelho. In the series, Bel Coelho travels all over Brazil discovering its culture, history and people, through the flavors of the national cuisine. She begins her long journey travelling to Bahia, the place where the Portuguese first arrived in Brazil, and where the African roots are most visible in the country. She later explores the Amazon Forest, meeting the first residents of Brazil, the indigenous people.
She continues her way through Brazil at the northeast region and its many faces, beginning by learning about the coastal seafood. She then enters the arid lands of the Sertão, to celebrate the famous Brazilian party Festa Junina in Caruaru. She ends her tour in the northeast having some dessert in Alagoas.
On her next trip she goes inside Brazil to discover Minas Gerais and its golden history, before facing some wild animals in the Pantanal. Next is a journey through the south and southeast towards the discovery of the European, Japanese, Portuguese and Arab immigrants and their cuisine. She ends her long Brazilian expedition passing by Brasilia to taste the food of the Cerrado region.
THE CLEANERS looks at how the utopian dream of a global community that launched Social Media has become a nightmare of cultural division – spreading fake news, influencing elections, fostering racial hatred and fueling the militant radicalization of thousands throughout the world.
Making use of the state-of-the-art technology, this real scientific-adventure documentary follows a group of the most renowned scientists as they plan and set off for a major expedition within a still unexplored part of the Amazon jungle, in search for new species.
