23rd Annual Minneapolis - St. Paul International Film Festival

The Wild Condition (screening as part of Minnesota Mavericks) (Special Screening)
DIRECTOR: Rolf Belgum

The film interweaves the story of untamed eighty-one year old woman with the domestication of a wolf. Her son and his dog stand at the center of this story which is propelled by the forces of nature however small and unexpected they maybe. The Wild Condition seamlessly melds fiction, nature and documentary film elements into an uncanny mixture of hallucination and familiarity to create an almost Cassevetes like atmosphere. Born 1965 Minneapolis- Rolf Belgum’s work has been featured in 2000 Whitney Biennial (cinematic arts) the Sundance Channel and numerous film festivals. His prvious films Driver 23 and The Atlas Moth have screened in M-SPIFF. His work has been reviewed in the New York Times, Village Voice, Bomb Magazine, and Art In America.
