The Wolf Suit is a

personal documentary 

The Wolf Suit is a personal documentary about memory, truth, and power and the stories we tell ourselves about the past. Troubled by conflicting accounts of her parents’ break-up and the happy childhood memories of when they all lived together in Walthamstow, director Sam Firth embarks on an emotional exploration of those recollections – and by extension the notion of truth – and details the results of tapping into them. Employing a wide range of narrative and exploratory devices – from video journal entries and interviews with her parents, to dramatic reconstructions using actors and her parents as co-directors – the film explores a painful and often surprising territory. This is a film about subjectivity, trauma, family dynamics and whose story we choose to believe.
