Based on the eponymous book by French writer Jean-Cristophe Rufin, the feature Vermelho Brasil tells the story of Nicolas Durand de Villegaignon’s journey to Brazil in the 1550’s and his struggle to create a colony, the so-called French Antarctica, in Brazil, which was already a property of Portugal.
