Two garranos salvajes (Equus ferus atlanticus) fight during the annual Rapa das Bestas in Sabucedo, A Estrada, Galiza, Spain, on July 5, 2014. The annual round up of wild horses, known as Rapa das bestas (taming of the animals) is an ancient Galician celebration with over 400 years of tradition, held for four days in which men and women (aloitadores) fight with wild horses on the ground with his hands to cut their manes and tails. The garrano salvaje (Equus ferus atlanticus) is an ancient, primitive equid, which should take about 20,000 years inhabiting the galician forests, and a specie endangered due to the lack of a management program of the Galician government Xunta de Galicia, whitout any protection, and other problems arising from the implementation of a microchip in the skin.

Fuga de cerebros

Fuga de cerebros é un documental de catro parellas de científicos vivindo e traballando en Colonia (Alemania), Estocolmo (Suecia), París (Francia) e Birmingham (Alabama) donde o seu traballo é moito máis recoñecido. Neste trailer falta a parella de USA. Filmado en 2009. Entrevistas e ambente do lugar donde residen os científicos galegos.

O documental tiña previsto emitirse na TVG pero co cambio de governo non se levou adiante.
