Pirates in Callao (Spanish: Piratas en el Callao) is a 2005 Peruvian CGI science fantasy animated film directed by Eduardo Schuldt based on the children's book of the same name written by Hernán Garrido Lecca. It tells the story of Alberto, a Peruvian kid who gets lost during a school trip to the Real Felipe Fortress in the seaport of Callao. The nine-year-old Alberto falls through a hole and travels back in time to the 17th century when the port is about to be attacked by a group of Dutch pirates led by Jacques L'Hermite. There he meets children who have also travel back in time and together they fight and defeat L'Hermite. The film is notable for being one of the first computer-animated film made in Latin America.
