She is also continuing her long-term documentary project in Brazil, "Colonia Philippson". This was a Jewish settlement which existed from 1904-1926. Gina took a particular interest in this colony for it bears her mother’s maiden name because her great-great-grandfather was vice president of the Jewish Colonization Association which set up the colony. Little to nothing remains of the colony today, she’s trying to keep the story alive and spread the example of integration in immigration.
