Having no talents or dreams for his future, elementary school boy Hiroto is in a deep crisis. But one day he sees a wrestling match with popular masked fighter Dynamite Wolf and becomes enthusiastic. An energetic coming-of-age dramedy, Kohei TANIGUCHI’s sophomore feature was filmed with support from the Dotonbori Pro Wrestling League, taking the film beyond the realm of a typical low-budget movie.
Kohei TANIGUCHI was born in Kyoto in 1988 and studied Video Art at Ritsumeikan University. Shooting his first short films during his studies, he worked as an assistant director in the field of V-Cinema after his graduation. The production of DYNAMITE WOLF was supported by a grant from the Cineastes Organization Osaka (CO2).
