The hour of the wolf…
It is the hour between night and dawn.
It is the hour when most children are born and most people die.
It’s the time when the wolf is lurking outside the door,
when ghosts and demons are most powerful,
when sleep is deepest,
when nightmares are most real.
It is the hour when the sleepless are haunted by their deepest fears
and all they can hear is the sound of their heart.
It’s the hour of the deepest confession…

A piece on male gentleness and affection, the need for love and coexistence, the search for identity, of being and belonging.

Based on random meetings of contact that come and go, the tender hearts of our project are confronted with their passions, their desires and fears. Their main opponent, always their self and their loneliness.

A dark, pagan and at the same time poetic journey in search for identity and the need to belong somewhere. In a timeless landscape, a place without memory, voyagers are struggling quietly, seeking a companion, acceptance … their position in the pack.
