Gente Remota é uma série sobre os Descobrimentos Portugueses vistos de um prisma antropológico- cultural, onde o estudo das pessoas, das instituições, dos rituais iniciáticos e das trocas comerciais, trazem um novo olhar sobre uma época de visão marcadamente etnocentrista.
Decifrar os códigos comportamentais e funcionais daquela época tornar-nos-ão não só comtemporâneos desses séculos como também nos ajudará a compreender o mundo moderno, também ele rico de convenções e rituais.

[This series reports on the ethnological aspects of some fascinating countries that we still consider exotic: from Morocco to India, from Gabon to Japan.
"Remote People" approaches the Portuguese doiscoveries from a Cultural-Anthropological point of view.
This series deals with Man and the Blending of the different cultures. The 15th and 16th century Portuguese Discoveries revealed important geographical knowledge. However, over and above the diversities of climates and Lands, the diversity of Man was revealed.
Deciphering the behaviour and functional codes of that era makes us contemporaries and helps us to understand our own present conventional and ritualistic world.
The differences between men were revealed at all levels: traditions, beliefs, politics, etc., which was what made the Portuguese Discoveries so important, particularly from the Anthropological point of view, becoming an excellent introduction to the study of Man and the different cultures.
There are many accounts, chronicles, letters and documents remaining, important to the history of Cultural diversity. The purpose of these reports is to follow some of those journeys into the past, and with the help of the information provided, relive that history with today's knowledge of the present world.
The diversity of Man shown in its (sometimes primeval) habits, customs, religions, etc.
