PERROLOBO (LYCISCA)

Gerard Ortín Castellví

Spain 45 min Catalan premiere

Synopsis

Perrolobo (Lycisca) proposes a fragmented journey across the Valley of Karrantza; a catching dog breed contest, an automatized milking machine, the sound of a conch shell used by a sheppard to scare the wolf or a cave discovered after the explosion of a stone quarry are some of the elements that structure the film. Through a landscape of relationships, the film brings these frictions to the fore, the accents and shadows of a changing reality where speaking of domestication is as fully inappropriate as talking about purity or some natural state.
