In THE WOLFMAN, I travel through remote areas in Norway and Sweden, in search for signs of illegal wolves, witnesses and the mysterious Wolfman.
The film`s point of departure, is the still ongoing confrontation between the authorities and the underground activity claiming illegal reintroduction of wolves in Norway and Sweden. The debate has developed into a conspiracy with references to modern mythology.
In the film, it is difficult to know when the documentary veers into the realm of fiction. The blurred boundary is a reflection over the power of images, and how the writing of history, truth, propaganda and myths are all intertwined.
In THE WOLFMAN it is unclear what witnesses actually have seen, and when their imagination takes over. The wolf becomes a victim for people`s imaginations and desires. Eventually, the wolf transforms into an enemy and personal threat. The “Wolfman” appears as a mythical character, holding the final truth and evidence of the illegal reintroduction.
