The West Indies fleet

2021 | Documentary I Drama I 68 min I Colour


The discovery of America influenced those two continents that had remained separate and completely absent between each other. Although the true connection will require several centuries to be effective and above all. It will need a special connection to make it possible. That connection will be the Indian Fleets, one of the most successful naval systems in history, which with its constant navigation for more than two centuries, will end up transforming the New World and initiating the process of world globalization.

At Inicia Films we understand that production is a way to influence society and connect emotionally with the audience. Since 2006 we have been working to promote new generations of filmmakers and thus give them a voice in today’s audiovisual world.

Through the eyes of our creators, the sensitivity of our authors, we accompany the development of international projects and multicultural talent, building bridges between their experiences abroad and their roots. We deal with topics that respond to current concerns and we believe that by connecting people and emotions we can help draw new narrative and visual horizons.
