‘Tar’: Catching up with Veteran Actor Graham Greene and Filmmaker Aaron Wolf

As the co-founder of Howling Wolf Productions, Aaron Wolf has had not shortage of film projects. Over the last two decades, Wolf has directed, produced, acted, wrote, and edited comedies to documentaries to dramas. This year, just in time for Halloween, Wolf has decided to throw his hat into the horror ring with his creature feature flick Tar.

For 40,000 years, there was a wetland in LA, teeming with ancient creatures, a place everyone long forgot. But now humans have left that wetland as a pit of hot, sticky tar that surrounds a vast urban landscape. For Barry Greenwood and his son Zach, there’s not much left of their family business either. The city’s subway expands under their feet and the city slates their office building for demolition. The demolition forced Barry, Zach and their employees to shut down their shop and move out. Three family generations and three lifetimes of hard work turns into rubble. But the underground construction awakes something primal. And a night of somber packing becomes a desperate fight for survival.

Aaron Wolf wrote and directed the film that features veteran actor Timothy Bottoms. It also stars Tiffany Shepis and Max Perlich and Canadian treasure and Oscar nominee Graham Greene.

Canadian born Wolf now lives in the States says that it was a dream come true to have Canada see his latest film. Another dream was to work with actors he admired for so long. “As a Canadian, with my family being from Toronto, every time I get to bring a film home to my Motherland, it feels extra special. Summers in Toronto were a childhood happy place to me. As a kid, whenever I’d made a film or acted in something, the whole family would gather around my Grandparents TV and watch my stuff, the good, the not so good, and the ridiculous.

“Lots of ridiculous. Now to be able to bring another film to Canada, this time getting to co-star with two fellow Canadians in Oscar Nominee Graham Greene, as well as Stuart Stone, it feels we are giving a movie set in Los Angeles, it’s Canadian blood, and once you see the film, a bit of mine.  And most of all, getting to release the film in Canada makes me hope my Grandparents are looking down, from wherever they are, smiling.”

Tar is now available on digital and on demand.
