Overview

Part of the 

strand.

A modern re-imagining of classic fable Little Red Riding Hood, this tightly calibrated film explores trauma, grief and redemption in a dangerous world.

A traumatised young girl is discovered in the woods by a social pariah dealing with his own demons, set against snowy Oregon landscapes reminiscent of The Shining.

Restrained and understated, this is a dark psychological drama featuring strong performances in which gradual insights and twists pack an emotional punch.

As long as I can remember I’ve loved fairytales. I’m fascinated by the stories that people pass down from one generation to the next that explain and tell us what is fair, what to fear, and how to live.

Which brings me to the inspiration for To Kill a Wolf: Little Red Riding Hood. I found myself wondering, what kind of story inspired a tale like Red Riding Hood. What was the original, complicated truth that inspired a simple tale of a girl who strays from the path. From this story we know to do as our mother says, stay on the path, don’t talk to strangers….
