Lobo E Cão
Directed by Cláudia Varejão
Ana was born in São Miguel, an island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean ruled by religion and traditions. Growing up
as the middle child of a family of three with her mother and grandmother, Ana realized that girls and boys were given
different tasks at home. Through her friendship with Luis, her queer best friend who loves dresses as much as pants, Ana questions the world that is promised to her. When her friend Cloé arrives from Canada, bringing with her the glowing days of youth, Ana embarks on a journey that will take her beyond the horizon. Filled with new desires, the light of Wolf & Dog will reveal to Ana the right sea for her to sail.
Wolf & Dog is the enchanting ode to the island’s queer community. The twlight glow that crosses the immense Atlantic Ocean.
