Orlando Ribeiro – Journey from a Geographer
In 1911, Orlando Ribeiro, humanist, art lover, erudite explorer of the world, founded the scientific basis of the National Geography and becomes an unique figure of this science.
His field notes and photos of his inseparable Leica need to be shared on a documentary that aims to bring together the absolute richness obtained through this so perceptive and sensitive perspective: the geographer’s eye.
The camera traveled to places that the master Orlando Ribeiro helped us to understand and love. Arrábida, Beira Baixa, Madeira, Capelinhos and the Fire Island are some of the places we have revisited.
