Chuy, El Hombre Lobo (Chuy, The Wolf Man)

Jesus "Chuy" Aceves and a dozen members of his extended family suffer from the very rare condition of congenital hypertrichosis, or "werewolf syndrome," 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. This moving and visually arresting documentary is a portrait of Chuy and his relatives and examines their struggle to find love, acceptance and employment.
