Based on the homonymous piece by Francisco Lage and João Correia de Oliveira (1920), Os Lobos accompanies Ruivo, a sailor exiled to the Serra for a crime of passion. The arrival of the stranger, who ravishes the hearts of women and awakens passions, comes to disturb the quiet life of the rural village and the tragedy is guessed: “Sea lions should not climb the mountains,” Gardunho says, in a pronouncement of disgrace. Shot between 1922 and 1923, the film had the participation of non-professional actors and extras, and the photographic direction was given to Artur Costa de Macedo, who perfectly captures the natural and rural landscapes of Serra da Estrela and its traditions.
The CineEco 2017 is organized as usual by the municipality of Seia and this year is reinforced by the valorization of natural resources advocated by the Festival iNATURE Serra da Estrela and that the parallel activities of the Festival will be well evident, as in the celebrations that precede the week of CineEco.
CineEco is one of the oldest environmental film festivals in the world and is part of the Green Film Network, a platform of 40 festivals, of which it is also a founding member.
