Annett Wolf

Annett Wolf has had many lives, and it’s not over. Now 85 years old, she has moved to Halifax (Canada) with the hope of filming a snow wolf, a vision from her childhood that haunts her, the Wolf.
Here, we are in 1972 in Sweden, Jerry is shooting The Day the Clown Cried, that film he never wanted to release, but that we might see in 2025… but that’s another story.
Annett has just spent a week on set, it’s her last evening, it’s 2 a.m., Jerry is beyond exhaustion, and in a sordid office, Annett will slowly bring him to enjoy talking to HER. It’s overwhelming, and it will make you curious to know who is this woman who has directed more than 150 films, notably for Danish TV (their own A.S. Labarthe), but not only. It took a madman, Damien Bertrand, to unearth all this and start bringing Annette Wolf’s work back to life… I wanted, after the laughter, the invisible work, the fluidity of The Ladies Man, to undergo the anxiety, the work, the illness that it is to want to make people laugh!
