ESTEFANIA AND THE TRIP TO THE DEEP RANCH KINGDOM
I present to you a charming and moving story, called “Estefania and the trip to the Deep Ranch Kingdom”.
Estefania is an ordinary girl like many others. On a summer night, however, something mysterious happens. An enigmatic wagon takes the girl on a wonderful and unforgettable trip to a place called "Kingdom do Deep Ranch".
This fiction is full of adventure and inspiring beings. What makes this plot different from the others is the visibility given to the characters and the message conveyed by the plot.Estefania wishes to escape from her own reality precisely because she suffers discrimination from other children. But, characters such as Curupira, an indigenous boy who has his feet turned back, appear in the plot to help Estefania, and remind us of all the lessons that we cannot forget. In addition, Curupira appears to demonstrate how we must protect our natural resources (especially forests).
Despite the various references, the plot is simple, touching and moving. It is extremely likely that fantasy fans identify with the characters and the themes addressed. At the same time, it brings new characters and visibilities for this type of literature.
Short film selected for "Minute’s Festival 2019" and "Bang Awards 2020 (Portugal)".
