Today, I discovered a seemingly excellent book (PT) accompanied by eleven 30-min documentaries about handmade products from the Northeast, the work of Isabela Cribari (the Culture Director at the Joaquim Nabuco Foundation). While I try to get my hands on the 260-page book in question, I also discovered the 11 documentaries, both on tal.tv and, of lesser visual quality, on Youtube. The tal.tv versions have Spanish subtitles, in case you speak Spanish.
The particular documentary I’m linking to (here) is all about Pernambuco, though the other documentaries in the series also cover the state. You can find them at the bottom of the page I just linked to.
