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.
Wolves are a part of the greater circle; innocence, honesty, spirit, mother earth
Buckle up, turn up the volume and listen to ethereal music, songs of the soul and the story of the wolf. Join Julia Huffman, director of Medicine of The Wolf as she takes us on journey. Chapter by chapter, we are introduced to Canis Lupus . Along the way, a Wolf biologist, Native American Indian Elder, photographer, a youth program, with rescued wolfdogs, and others share with us the history of the wolf, their value as apex predators to the ecosystem, their beauty, and how their strength and survival depends on the family unit or pack. They also teach us about the cultural and spiritual significance of the wolf and their ability to draw us in to a deeper spiritual sense of love.
Sadly, While the language of the wolf is universally recognized by their soulful howls, there is a divide in how they are are understood and seen; going back to the story of Little Red Riding Hood and today, their fragile place on the endangered species list . By some, they are viewed as ruthless killers and werewolves and by others, as intelligent, magnificent and essential creatures. We learn, just how misunderstood and persecuted they are. We learn just how much we also care about their survival.
Most of us will never have a chance to see or hear wolves in the wild. Medicine of the Wolf allows us to travel into wolf country and gives us a chance to see them through the eyes of Jim Brandenburg who has lived and photographed wolves for 45 years. We also find ourselves; like the teens at Wolf Connection reconnecting with something deeper within ourselves in the presence of wolves; if even on film. We are able to for a time, hear their howls and recover that which most of us have lost; our wildness, our sense of freedom and to ability to sing from the depth of our souls.
Medicine of the Wolf reminds us, why we should not only care about our Apex predators but also about this earth and the circle we are all part of.
Medicine of the Wolf, will leave you tasting the salt of your own tears. I LOVED it -- it left my heart filled with hope for our wolves. I know, I won't be alone.
