The Last Wolves is a crude, dark and violent science fiction drama series, that is a criticism toward all humans. The narrator tells us a children’s tale, which speaks of human ambition and its consequences. The title of the project is inspired by Thomas Hobbes quote "Man is a Wolf to Man".
The story is set at a certain time in the future, when technology confronts nature, creation and destruction in equal parts, and where the abuse of power consumes us.
After all, we’re the creators of our own destruction.
Director: Ryan Coyle
The day before the Redondo Fun Factory closes forever, and Lindsey contemplates whether she can enjoy life while knowing that it too will eventually end.
In a nutshell, the theme of this experimental film asks "Is life worth living," with a decaying arcade being a stand-in for existence as a whole.
While philosophical and unconventional, the film maintains an original structure and consistent point of view and attempts to offer an actual answer to this question.
This film was shot on 16mm film using a Krasnogorsk-3 camera, with sound recorded on a Nagra IV tape recorder. The presence of the old-fashioned equipment drew a lot of attention during filming, and the film was written while driving down to the Rendono Beach Fun Factory and recorded with only single takes.
"The "Tilt-A-Whirl" shot towards the end of the movie made me very nauseous, but is also one of the best moments I've had making movies."
