After 40 years of protection, Grey wolves were recently de-listed federally from endangered species act and their fate was handed over to state legislatures. What ensued was a 'push to hunt' in wolf country across the United States. Filmmaker Julia Huffman travels to Minnesota and into wolf country to pursue the deep and intrinsic value of brother wolf and our forgotten promise to him. The film stars Minnesota Native Jim Brandenburg and his film, White Wolf, that premiered at Sundance almost 30 years ago-in 1986. This National Geographic film is the documentary of an exceptional journey, by Jim who was determined to enlighten the world about the true nature of this planets most misunderstood carnivorous mammal.
Julia Huffman's documentary beautifully tells the history and uncovers many of the mysteries of wolves. It's current and compelling. The film comes at a time when the existence of wolves is in danger. Decisions by politicians to remove wolves from the endangered species list led to other decisions, state-by-state, to add wolves to the lists of animals that can be legally hunted and killed. Medicine Of The Wolf brings the audience literally face to face with wolves. We wolves interact with each other and with humans. The film introduces us to Jim Brandenburg and his images of wolves taken over a career of nature photography. Watching Medicine Of The Wolf I gained a deeper appreciation and understanding about this often misunderstood animal species and the choices humans can and will make about its future.
