A feature film by Cape Breton filmmaker Ashley McKenzie, and producer Nelson MacDonald will finally debut in Cape Breton after making waves at its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and Atlantic Film Festival.

Werewolf, is McKenzies first feature and was shot entirely in and around New Waterford, the filmmakers hometown.

MacDonald, Werewolfs producer says he and McKenzie wanted to illustrate something true to the area, which would step outside cliché landscape shots. The film was inspired by real events, and stars Cape Breton native, non-professional actors.

Werewolf tells the story of Blaise and Nessa, (played by locals Andrew Gillis and Bhreagh MacNeil - who HAT audiences will remember from last summer's MATURE YOUNG ADULTS), two marginalized methadone users in the town. Each summer day, they push their rusty lawnmower from door-to-door pleading to cut grass in exchange for drug cash. Nessa wants to leave her life in New Waterford, while Blaise lingers on the verge of crashing altogether. The couple, bound by their relationship, watch their dreams of escaping begin to drown.

It's the fifth film and first feature from the pair's production company, Grassfire Films. McKenzie was last at TIFF in 2015 with her short 4 Quarters, which also won "Best Atlantic Short" at last year's Atlantic Film Festival.
