Meow Wolf:
Origin Story

About the Documentary

“An inspiration for artists everywhere.”
Birth.Movies.Death.

This feature-length documentary chronicles a group of rebellious artists in Santa Fe who become a DIY collective named Meow Wolf. Their immersive, large-scale exhibitions happen to crack open a profitable niche in the arts and entertainment industry. With the wild success of the House of Eternal Return, the collective is now facing its own internal turmoil – even as it begins to change the lives of creatives everywhere.
