From the catalog:
mundane town sets off a deep-seated passion within her, shattering the
drudgery of her
dull days. Determined to hunt the untamed creature, she finds
herself pulled to the natural world as a fearless lust for the wolf
grows, eliciting a
desire for her own sexuality and a disregard for social graces,
repulsing yet attracting everyone around her. As the balance between the
and modern civilization begins to tip, so too do Ania’s
inhibitions, forcing her to question the glaring hypocrisies closing in
for the ages. Along with Krebitz’s sharp vision, Lilith Stangenberg’s
performance with her co-star, a wolf, takes us into the mind of a
woman led by the deepest and wildest forces to break free of a world
commodity, female dependence on male sexuality, and the mundane
minutia of modern life. Visually poetic and sexually charged, Wild is a
accomplishment of revolutionary fantasy.
