Tattered Flagg - The Wolves Within

'The truth is not what you wish it to be. It is what it is and you must bend to its power or live a lie.'
- Miyamoto Musashi

Randall Flagg comes face to face with his own, self-destructive demon and the guardian angel trying to protect him. Who will win in the battle for control?
Inspired by the Cherokee proverb of The Two Wolves.

Director Statement

This short is based on the popular Native American story of the two wolves, but retold in a way that references black and white Japanese samurai movies. It’s part of a larger screenplay by David Robbins that features many such Jungian interactions and battles between good and evil. David wrote a powerful script with clear imagery to follow, which made this a fun project. Of course filming on the beach has its own set of difficulties, but we persevered!
