Film details

This delightful film, a sort of magical realist or mythical documentary set in the rural Salamanca region of north western Spain, follows Eusebio Mayalde, a shaman who howls like a wolf at the full moon. He’s also a folklorist and percussionist who makes music with spoons, pans and even his own hands. Riding across the wintry landscape on his old motorcycle, Eusebio cuts a striking figure; an image that complements his energy, passion and prodigious musical talent. The time has come to transmit his knowledge to Zaniki, his eight-year-old grandson. On a journey of initiation, the two venture into the mountains, to share the most primal rites of their land, and to make Zaniki the new troubadour of tradition.
