MONDAY NOVEMBER 30: Chuy, The Wolf Man: Documentary Screening with Director Eva Aridjis

We are so very excited to be hosting Eva Aridjis--director of Santa Muerte--for a screening of her new documentary film Chuy, The Wolf Man. This film traces the lives of Jesus 'Chuy' Aceves and his family, all of whom suffer from congenital hypertrichosis, or excessive hair on the face and body. It examines, in the words of the director, "their day-to-day lives and their struggle to find love, acceptance and employment."

The film will screen at the Morbid Anatomy Museum this Monday, November 30; you can find out more in this recent article in the BBC, and more about the event here. You can watch the trailer above.

Hope very much to see you there!
