Histories of Wolves

NEW DOCS

From the village of Pitões das Júnias in northern Portugal comes a collection of chilling tales about encounters with wolves, in which the tellers’ eccentricities blur fact and fiction. The ominous soundscape and dark photography elevate the spooky atmosphere as several longtime residents impart their passed-down myths to the viewer. Fear, mystery, and a dash of playfulness surround the retellings of meetings between man and wolf. The film skillfully preserves an oral tradition of storytelling and an acute sense of timelessness in its folkloric stories.  KR
