Lupi Lupi Lu


a musical film by Adam Castle
for BBC Scotland / LUX Scotland






A musical about being diagnosed with lupus, featuring a wolf and a butterfly. Lupus means wolf in latin, yet the symbol for most lupus organisations is a butterfly, named after the 'butterfly rash'. I had this rash when I was first diagnosed, and this film explores how the fear of diagnosis led me to not to research anything about the condition for over ten years.
