The film "Fernando who Received a Bird From the Sea" - a Curtas Metragens CRL production, directed by Felipe Bragança and Helvécio Marins Jr. - was selected for the official competition of the 46th Festival de Brasília. The film was produced by the project Estaleiro - involving a team of young students from Portugal and Brazil - and had its world premiere at the 21st Curtas Vila do Conde, yet still in a working version. The film to be projected in Brasilia is already a final version of the project.

"Fernando Who Received a Bird from the Sea" is an imaginary dialogue between Portugal and Brazil, in a little Portuguese-Brazilian song. Fernando spends his time between a cafe in the neighbourhood and his small house in Porto. Coming from Brazil he receives a small present that makes him imagine paradise.

The short film is made by Helvécio Marins Jr. (author of another film produced by Curtas Metragens CRL, "The Song of the Nightingale", and author of the acclaimed film "Swirl") and Felipe Bragança (one of the authors of the new Brazilian cinema, responsible, among others, for the feature film "A Alegria").
