Join Indievents and Club David, Sunday, August 21, for the South Dakota Premiere of THE WOLF’S ROBE.
THE WOLF’S ROBE is a new independent film made in neighboring Nebraksa. Indievents is excited to screen this film only 10 days after it’s already near sold out world premiere in Lincoln Nebraska. We will be one of the first few audiences to get to see this film!
Magician and con-artist, Victor Hunt (Will Griffey), flees the authorities after a botched bank robbery. Finding a minister stuck on the road, Victor steals his robe and credentials, leaving the minister tied in the woods. Victor’s trajectory goes awry when the Engel family believes him to be the new minister coming to officiate their daughter’s wedding and lead the church.
Realizing his need to gather enough money to leave the United States, Victor decides to stay with the Engels in their impoverished town and use his new identity to amass what little money they have. As a devout atheist, Victor cons the town through the puritanical teachings of his foster mother and uses those teachings to take their money and punish them for their indifference to one another. Yet, to Victor’s surprise, he bonds with the Engels.
Upon learning that his religious apprentice and the Engel’s only single daughter, Maybelle (Erin Howard), holds Russian citizenship, Victor begins a spellbinding end-of-days charade to escape the country with her. As pressure from the authorities mount, wrought with turmoil, he must decide on coming clean to the town or bankrupting it and breaking the hearts of the only family he’s known.
Writer, producer, and director AJ Oetman as well as some of the cast and crew will be in attendance. Following the screening will be an audience Q and A and a social hour.
