Cantábrico, a new feature-length nature documentary, is released in cinemas across Spain on Friday and it promises to show you Spain as you have never seen it before.


The protagonists of this breathtaking film include a pack of wolves, a family of brown bears, wild cats and amazing birdlife found in the mountains of Asturias, Cantabria and Castilla y León.

The filmmakers took two years to collect rare footage of Spain’s fauna in their natural habitat, including a never before filmed deer hunt carried out by a pack of Iberian wolves.

Thanks to the use of high-definition cameras as well as drones, the crew were able to capture stunning scenes showing the life of Spain’s rare Cantabrian bears as well as close-ups of carnivorous plants devouring insects and Ibex skipping across snowy peaks.

The film, directed by Joaquín Gutiérrez Acha and produced by Wanda Films, is on general release across Spain on Friday March 31st.
