Storyline

When war correspondents move on to their next conflict, a more personal struggle is just beginning for those left behind. Poverty, PTSD, and political corruption continue to stifle recovery nearly 20 years after the brutal civil war in Bosnia Herzegovina. Luckily for some in the small mountain town of Livno, an unorthodox leader has emerged, giving struggling veterans and their community an unlikely path to healing. A paramilitary leader at the young age of 20, Lija led the successful defense of his town while neighbors fell to the invading forces. Today he heads the Wolves, a motorcycle club that resembles the stereotype in rough image only. Under his leadership, this wild crew has become a positive force for good with a self-defined humanitarian focus. One mission captures their spirit more than any other. In the mountains where they once fought, they now defend a herd of wild horses that society has similarly deemed expendable. A harsh environment, poachers, and urbanization ... Written by Jake

Beautiful, moving, exemplary documentary filmmaking
3 August 2018 | by bradley-bethelSee all my reviews

Every once in a while a film comes along that has the potential to bring together disparate audiences and reveal to them their shared values and humanity. AMONG WOLVES is one such film. Military veterans and peace activists, motorcycle enthusiasts and animal lovers -- the potential dialogue between such seemingly dissimilar groups in response to this film would undoubtedly be refreshing in our current era of discord and polarization. Roger Ebert said that "movies are like a machine that generates empathy." AMONG WOLVES indeed generates empathy, and we need more films like it.
