Chuy, The Wolf Man: Documentary Screening with Director Eva Aridjis
Date: Monday, November 30th
Time: 8pm
Admission: $12
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue 11215 Brooklyn NY

Jesus 'Chuy' Aceves and a dozen living members of his extended family suffer from the very rare condition of congenital hypertrichosis, meaning they were born with excessive hair on their faces and bodies. Due to their appearance, they suffer from discrimination in all areas of their lives: the children are made fun of at school and abandoned by their 'non-hairy' parents, and the adults cannot find work unless they choose to exhibit themselves as freaks in circuses. This moving and visually arresting documentary is a portrait of Chuy and his family members. It examines their day-to-day lives and their struggle to find love, acceptance and employment.

Eva Aridjis grew up in Mexico City and got her MFA in Film and TV from New York University. She is the director and producer of five feature-length films, including the narrative films "The Favor" and "The Blue Eyes" and the documentaries "Children of the Street", "Saint Death" and "Chuy, The Wolf Man." Her films have screened at festivals around the world including Sundance, Edinburgh and the LA Film Festival. She has also directed several short films and music videos and taught Screenwriting at NYU.

Tickets are non-refundable unless the event is canceled.
