Rules For Werewolves

Rules for Werewolves is a dual narrative investigating a youthful wolfpack of post-recession house squatters.

Tanya, a new recruit, guides us through a pack B & E / household takeover; a whirling mass of youth looting their diverse wants and needs into colour-coded backpacks.

Throughout, we hear Bobert. He's narrating a story from his troubled time before finding (or possibly founding) the werewolves that subtly mirrors and adds context to Tanya's path. His story swirls around the pack, illuminating connections between art and artist, hope, community and loneliness. By the time the cops show up, the kids have disappeared, but the pack have left someone (or something) behind.
