In Asturias and other areas of Spain there is an old conflict between cattle ranchers and wolves. The locals are very angry over a new law, which will ban their hunting and consider it a protected animal. Some farmers and hunters base their hatred towards the animal on their stories and anecdotes, influenced by their cultural unconscious. But even a large part of our society continues with this stigma in its inner core, projected in stories and legends.

Humans and wolves share the same space, a terrain that in recent decades has been modified and mostly controlled by man. In the difficulty of coexistence lies conflict. That is why the place has to reflect tension and violence. Mystery and mysticism will be reflected supported by formal elements such as OST, photography and montage.

The inhabitants, their thought, the places and their actions emanate their reality. But the narrative will convey the cultural fear carried away for centuries through the word, rooted in the gaze of the inhabitants of the area. The "wild" territory, where "the enemy" is hidden, will transmit in a sensory way the danger and the emotions of those who enter it.

Who are we:

We are a group of students who are doing their final grade work. Passionate about nature and ecology, we decided to learn about the Iberian wolf and discover the controversy following the new law approved this year in Spain.

Through interviews with environmental experts, we understood the tensions between dynamics that are historically problematic and seem to be coming to an end. So we decided to meet those directly affected by the presence of wolves, and we found some small villages in Asturias where wolf attacks are persistent. An isolated area, dominated by the feeling of neglect and incomprehension on the part of urban society.

We are interested in observing, understanding and portraying their experiences, their world and their way of understanding the environment. To learn where we came from, the origin of the conflict and possible solutions. Livestock and hunting are issues that today arouse quite polarized opinions. We want to open a window for the viewer to know, reflect and broaden their opinion as we are doing.
