...Wolf Queen film coming soon...


 









Wolf Queen examines the many stories of the last of Galicia’s pagan queens.... with three possible outcomes… 

Confronted by encroaching powers, 7th century Queen Lupa or Wolf outwits Rome, church, early empire, Visigoths and annoying pilgrims dragging the body of their Apostle all over her territory. She is a major character in the area’s mythology. Lupa and her countrywomen are infamous for having magical powers, for being skilled in pagan arts of healing, herbs, navigation by stars and esoteric arts. The ‘witches’ truly freaked out the patriarchal, order-loving Romans, and early Catholic Church. Why is the Wolf Queen called the Wolf Queen? Why has her legend endured? A 12th century French monk first mentions Lupa in Codex Calixtinus, a pilgrim’s guidebook. Is her reluctance to aid the first pilgrims and conversion to Christianity more church propaganda like other parts of the Codex? Intriguing variations in her story compelled me to make an examination of her character in film. For more go to Planet of Dreams.
