SYNOPSIS

Artists and filmmakers Joaquín Cociña and Cristóbal León illustrate the virtues of a
small community isolated from the outside world in this animated film set in a
hermetic German settlement in Chile (inspired by the infamous Dignidad colony
created by the Nazis and that was used as a torture center during the Pinochet
dictatorship). María is a German girl who escapes from the community only to find
herself trapped in a mysterious mansion, where a strange presence alters forms
and manipulates reality, leading her into a dark world full of gothic references.
Painstakingly executed stop-motion, accompanied by an equally meticulous sound
design enrich the animation, which establishes a dialogue between film and the
plastic arts that resonates with political allusion and psychological horror. A bizarre
film whose “making of” process has been exhibited at museums the world over,
The Wolf House employs black humor to question the use of cinema as an
instrument of propaganda, while revealing the darker side of fairytales.
