WOLF AND DOG
Available worldwide (Except in Portugal, France, Italy, Spain, Austria, Brazil, Switzerland and Mexico)
Special Jury Award (Youth Feature) - FIC Valdivia
Ana was born in São Miguel, an island ruled by religion and traditions. In between Luis, her queer best friend who loves dresses as much as pants, and her friend Cloé from Canada, bringing with her the glowing days of youth, Ana embarks on a journey filled with new desires. Wolf and Dog is the enchanting ode to the island’s queer community where the twilight glow crosses the immense Atlantic Ocean.
