The Voyages of Fernao Mendes Pinto
Watch the Portuguese Pilgrimage movie, so that you can see the adventurous voyages of Fernao Mendes Pinto brought to life.
Fernão Mendes Pinto lived a life full of adventure, and his book about his escapades in the 1500’s was published after his death.
At the time much of his writing seemed outlandish, and it seems even more so now.
We may never know what is fact and what is fiction, but we can definitely be entertained by his tales.
I’m sure that truth was a starting point for many of the tales he told, but it is clear that they have been embellished for our entertainment.
A remarkable imagining of the historic voyages of 16th-century explorer and writer Fernão Mendes Pinto.
He was one of the first Europeans to sail to and travel the Orient, India, Japan, and places in between.
Choral renditions of Portuguese singer-songwriter Fausto’s progressive 80’s pop album Por Este Rio Acimo adds a lush inspiration to what, in many ways, is a brutally honest period drama.
Or is it?
Pinto’s controversial memoirs emerge onscreen with a sweeping audacity.
