Meow Wolf: Origin Story Teaser

"People need to see this. This is the new art." The SXSW Film Festival kicks off this week, so there's a bunch of new trailers arriving for films at the fest. Here's one for a funky documentary titled Meow Wolf: Origin Story, an exciting exploration of the art collective known as Meow Wolf. "A group of artists, punks, and weirdos create a subversive DIY collective to disrupt the art establishment in Santa Fe, NM, which in the face of internal turmoil evolves into a cultural phenomenon on the path to becoming a global creative empire." The film looks back at the creation of Meow Wolf, founded in 2008, and how the collective works. "With the wild success of the House of Eternal Return, Meow Wolf now faces its own internal turmoil as it begins to change the lives of creatives everywhere." This is only a teaser but this seems perfectly wacky and captivating enough that I would definitely put the doc on my schedule during the fest. Get your tease below.

Looks interesting. Hopefully the story told isn't as obscure as the art itself...

Looks okay. Kind of annoying, but got to respect the drive.
