In the film Wolfsgrub, Nicolas Humbert is on the trail of his own history. Wolfsgrub is the name of the house where Humbert’s mother lives, and through she is getting on in years, she becomes young again as she answers her son’s questions. Nicolas Humbert allows his mother the space and time to tell her story, portraying her everyday life through the use of concentrated images. From the bits and pieces of these narrative fragments, a stunning portrait of a freethinking woman emerges. Music by Fred Frith and Aram Gulezyan.
“A gripping documentary about common experience in a very personal context.” — Die Abendzeitung
