Homo Orcus, Wild Man of the Pyrenees

By Javier Resines

On April 1, 2011, Planete, the French TV network, will be presenting a “mockumentary” on the wild man of the Pyrnees, whom they have given the moniker Homo Orcus
This fifty minute long mockumentary kicks off from an original premise: the alleged encounter with a humanity different from our own, and the consequences that this would bring. The French documentary will also be presented at the Bordeaux Film Festival on April 7.

It is interesting that its authors – Eric Audinet and Patrick Glotin - have taken as the core of their work the stories and narratives that have circulated for centuries about the existence of alleged hominids in the Pyrnees and various forested areas of Europe. We are accustomed to seeing such initiatives emerging from North America, famous for its Bigfoots and Sasquatches, and not from our own woods. The Pyrenaic wild man, both in its Spanish and French variants, therefore acquires a unusual leading role in productions of this sort.

The mockumentary is even accompanied by the press release that appears below:

May 2010: German and French paleontologists discover a new type of hominid. Research into the existence of this intraterrestrial being plunges us into a number of scientific, philosophical and moral issues.

Early 2010 was full of surprises by those interested in the origins of Man: the discovery of Denisova Man and the disclosure of cross-breeding between Homo Sapiens and Neanderthals, constitute decisive scientific steps that have impacted entire fields of knowledge.

Harder still to believe is the discovery of Homo Orcus, a hominid currently living in the great forests of Europe. Although previously recorded in 1998 by Delson and Flinkenstein, paleontologists at Germany’s Heidelberg University, their evidence was not taken seriously. Research on Homo Orcus is spearheaded by the main experts in the field, anthropologists from the INSERM and CNRS and Jesuit philosophers and theologians. Their experiences enable us to accept the unimaginable. This film also takes us to the heart of Homo Orcus’s habitat: woods were the locals have some alarming tales to tell.”

We repeat: All of this is phony. But very interesting, don’t you agree? Now, let’s hope that another production company decides to dub Homo Orcus, une seconde humanité, into Spanish. (Or English, as the case may be! - SC)
