Histórias de Lobos

Histories of Wolves

Documentary, 22'27", Portugal

This film is a collection of stories related with wolf in north Portugal mountains.

Pitões das Júnias is a village isolated in the rocky mountains of northeastern Portugal. At the end of the day the shepherds gather to talk and tell stories about things that have happened, or maybe not... The legends and stories of old times that they tell again and again are inspired by their isolation in the mountains, stemming from the villagers confrontation with the dangers hidden amidst the wild environment that surrounds them.
