Histórias de Lobos
Portugal / 2018 / 22' / Italian premiere
Pitões das Junias 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.
