Images Online is a virtual effort by Images Cinema to continue to introduce the best new films to our community while we are temporarily closed. Films can be watched online on your at-home screens. The cost of each online “ticket” sold will be split between film distributor KimStim and Images Cinema, so each rental will directly help the theater weather these challenging times. Thanks to the filmmakers for their partnership, and thanks to you, our film-loving community, for your continued support of Images.

The Wolf House
Maria, a young woman finds refuge in a house in the south of Chile after escaping from a sect of German religious fanatics. She is welcomed into the home by two pigs, the only inhabitants of the place. Like in a dream, the universe of the house reacts to Maria’s feelings. The animals transform slowly into humans and the house becomes a nightmarish world. Inspired on the actual case of Colonia Dignidad, The Wolf House masquerades as an animated fairy tale produced by the leader of the sect in order to indoctrinate its followers.

"An astounding new animated film from Chile... these filmmakers have a perspective and a voice that feels entirely new. The film surprises, with incredible force, in every one of its 75 minutes." — New York Times

"It’s an endless metamorphosis that unfolds like some kind of real-time art installation, and in all honesty, it can be a touch overwhelming to take in at times — which is why the digital release is a blessing in disguise, as audiences can rewind to fully appreciate this awe-inspiring film’s layers of details." — Variety
