Adapted from the historic memoirs of 16th-century explorer Fernao Mendes Pinto, this sea-faring epic was an Official Oscar Entry from Portugal.

Over a span of twenty years, 16th-century Portuguese explorer Fernao Mendes Pinto lived a life of unparalleled adventure while traveling across the continent of Asia as a soldier, merchant, diplomat, pirate, and missionary. Shipwrecked and taken prisoner numerous times, he was one of the first Europeans to visit Japan and was even sentenced to a year of hard labor on the Great Wall of China. Adapted from his posthumously published memoirs and featuring songs from folk musician Fausto Bordalo Dias, this newly remastered sea-faring epic from acclaimed director Joao Botelho was Portugal's Official Entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards.
