The second installment in the Future trilogy, Better Future, Wolf-Shaped explores the degeneration of an urban totalitarian religion imposing the aesthetics of high modernism on everyday life.

Existing in the periphery, around the Celtic burial sites of Cornwall, the protagonists of the film attempt to implement the rituals of the state, but inevitably generate a more organic aesthetic, replicating modernist architecture in the medium of corn husks.

Communicating through performative gestures and choreographed movement set to a musical score composed by Steven Kado and Die Tödliche Doris, the actors participate in a ritual interaction with the sculptural set they help to construct.
