Check out the first official trailer for Ya'Ke Smith's Wolf, his feature film debut and SXSW 2012 official selection, which stars Irma P. Hall, Mikala Gibson, Jordan Cooper, Shelton Jolivette, and Eugene Lee in a story about a family...

... shaken to the core when they discover their son has been molested. As they struggle to deal with the betrayal, their son heads towards a total mental collapse because of his love for his abuser, while his abuser attempts to exorcise his own past demons.

This will be the 86-minute film's world premiere, and, as I said in my profile of the film last week, it's most certainly on my list of films to see at the festival which runs from March 9 - 17 (the film section anyway).

Watch the brooding trailer below; I'm looking forward to seeing this; the discussion that follows should be heavy:
