The Wolf and the Sheep

Welcome to the set of "The Wolf And The Sheep". The role of the Wolf is played by a woman, the role of the Sheep is played by a man who is... gay. These characters, ambiguous in various ways, are forced into an unambiguous film form (symbolising social conventions). Horror is mixed with slapstick comedy and the protagonists struggle like animals in a black-and-white tape cage.

Director Statement

>>The Wolf And The Sheep<< is a humorous fairy tale with a thrill. On the realistic level, it is a story on how an actress (playing the role of the Wolf) has to face her stage partner, who does not like the fact that his character dies. In the metaphorical layer, the novel can be read as a criticism of social conventions, including those related to gender and social roles.
