Description

Before TV, stories of blood-sucking werewolves ran rampant in the rocky Portuguese village of Pitões das Júnias. At nightfall, shepherds once gathered to tell tales about men and wolves. These days, only a handful remember or practice the oral tradition, and ancient instincts to remain alert and fearful are being forgotten along with it. Angie Driscoll
