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 shows us how miss understood and beautiful the wolf really is. I had no idea what a positive impact the wolf has on our environment. We must do our part to protect this beautiful species. Julia shows us in such a touching way the amazing connection Jim Brandenburg has to the wolf. He has spent his life living with wolf's and taking incredible photographs of them to also help us all see wolfs in a different light. Thank you Julia for bringing to our attention the importance of protecting this beautiful animal. I just can understand how anyone could kill such a beautiful animal, for that matter any animal, especially for sport. Personally I feel trophy hunting is not OK and should be banned. Please recommend to others to see this important film so more can get to know and understand the wolf, and maybe more will help protect them.
