Damien Bailey & Pamela Feghali
Wesley the Hobobobo talks gorillas, yetis, rat-tails, and rainbow popsicles, which are all interconnected to his missing tooth and his father’s macho principles. Will passing stranger, Maya, whose pressing concerns tick tock like her biological clock, have the time or desire to listen to Wesley’s fantastical stories? Will she even have a choice?
Tooth:Hurty tackles the fragility of boyhood, the insecurities of manhood, and the idealisation of fatherhood, all the while finding a place for the stifled female voice.
Directed by Capital Critics Circle Award winner Pamela Feghali
