This film will educate the public on an endangered species in their country that no one knows or is
talking about. We will look at what makes an African Wild Dog so unique and give insight on how
they are as a species with regards to their social dynamics and hunting techniques as a pack.
Part of the Pack will take the form of a short conservation documentary on African Wild Dogs. It is
one of Earth's oldest canines, with every dog having a unique coat differentiating the pack and giving
them individuality.
This film will show the organisations assisting and monitoring this species and we will interview
conservationists at the oldest game reserve in south Africa, who dedicate their lives to make a
difference. We will highlight the challenges and life threatening situations that African Wild Dogs
have to face on a daily basis. As a pack they face the threat of snaring, poaching, sicknesses, natural
enemies as well as negligent driving in reserves.
This film will enlighten and encourage the public on how it can assist, what it can do to make a
change, and how it can educate others to make a difference in the outcome the species is facing.
This film will represent the needs of Wild Dogs, and be the voice they need in order for assistance
and care. This film will bring light on the silent epidemic this species is facing and be the motivation
to get the public involved to make a difference.

Documentary about Malcata mountain range, in all of its dimensions and surroundings.
A journey that seeks to unravel the history of the region from the last 600 million years to the present day.
Malcata, located between Portugal and Spain, it’s a land of transition; a space of encounters and influence but permanently ruled by its isolation.

Since the pre-Roman era to the present day, settlers have dug these lands in search of its mineral riches and manipulated their watercourses, repelled invasions and used the border to move goods and men.

This journey will take us to the comeback of illustrious Black vulture, grebes that gather in reservoirs to sharpen their dancing acts, mills that gave rise to the development of rural communities, evidence of prehistoric animal activity remaining on the rocks, the daily struggle against the scarcity of resources and the Iberian lynx, the most endangered feline in the world, and which still lives in peoples’ memories.
