Lobos Sucios (Dirty Wolves)
Roughly translated from the German, Wolf-rham means "Dirty Wolf". Using this play on words, the documental draws you into the intriguing story of the black market trade in wolfram (or tungsten), which took place in the Casaio Mountains in Galicia, northern Spain, during the Second World War. According to the galician film-maker Felipe Rodríguez "with this documental we want to tell a story that was very important, although for many it remains unknown. Also, we would like to emphasise the necessity of knowing your own history, to avoid repeating the same mistakes; to forget hatred and look to the future". Uncovering a Body??: The documental starts with images from the exhumation of a body. They turn out to be the remains of the rebel, Miguel Cardeñas Lozano, who served a 30 year sentence in the Casaio mines penetentiary camp, and was executed in unclear circumstances. The storyline develops with a reconstruction of the steps taken that led to the discovery of the ditch where the body was found (near Soutadoiro, Carballeda in Galcia, northern Spain): the collaboration of specialists, historians, and older residents who remember that time to find the exact location; bringing the grandchildren from Jaén, Andalucia in the south of Spain, with the help of the Association for the Recuperation of Historical Memory, to discover the true story of Miguel Cardeñas.?? Uncovering the Memory??: "The city of the Germans" is strategically placed in the heart of Ourense, in Peña Trevinca, the highest mountains in Galicia. It was built and run by the Nazis during the Second World War, around the Casaio wolfram mines. Dirty Wolves,examines the stories of the people who worked in the mines, and from the families who went into the mountains to steal the precious and sought-after metal to sell on the blcak market, while the American and British secret agents tried to stem the flow of wolfram to Germany.?? Uncovering a Legend: The prestigious Galician writer Manuel Rivas brings his inimitable style and viewpoint to the story. This third line in the narrative aims to bring together the mysterious and fantastastical aspects that surround the mythical figure of the wolf, through images of the animal present in the other two narrative lines (mountains, villages, mines…). At the end of the day, this could easily become another traditional Galician tale.
