The film is a moving evocation of the truly profound experience of being suspended between being and not being.
‘What’s the Time Mr Wolf?’ takes the audience on a journey with a group of people who meet at an acting workshop. But there is a deeper connection and reason for why they have been invited together to make the film. They have all been on the mysterious and often terrifying voyage that starts with a tiny glitch in the brain.
‘A seizure is like a Wolf creeping up on you, ready to pounce …’
Who and where are you when you are not there, when for a moment or a couple of minutes you are ‘lost to the world’, when the Wolf has pounced?
The film evokes with startling vision the fears and courage of this quite ordinary and really remarkable group of people. It is their stories that are both inspirational and touching in a film of warmth and revelation.
“A superb film!”
“I was really moved by the film. It resonated and stayed with me for days. It was so heartfelt and sensitive. It touches a level of truth.”
