Nicolette Krebitz’s long awaited third feature WILD, shocked and awed audiences at the 2016 Sundance festival. A seductive, dark trip into the soul of civilized humanity, WILD is a strange, dream-like journey of sexual and spiritual liberation.
Ania (an extraordinary Lilith Stagenberg) is a 20-something office drone with a creep for a boss. Outside the office, her only social interaction involves Skyping her uninterested sister and visiting her comatose grandfather in hospital. One day when walking alongside a wooded area near her apartment she locks eyes with a feral grey wolf. This encounter sparks an animalistic primitivism within her that quickly turns into an obsessive desire to hunt down and conquer the beast.
"The best story J.G. Ballard never wrote." -- Sherilyn Connelly, SF Weekly
“That Wild works as a film is in no small part due to a fearless Lilith Stangenberg, who gives an absolutely stunning performance as Ania.” —ScreenAnarchy
