About: WOLF PRICE – Filmmaker / Palo Alto, California

Raised by photographers in Silicon Valley, Wolf decided at the age of 16 that he would explore the world. His goal: to walk a unique path while seeking influence from elders and other teachers. At that young age, he was awarded the prestigious California Arts Scholar of 2003 award for video, which garnered him a full scholarship to California State Summer School for the Arts. In 2011 Wolf received a 501c3 sponsorship through Inter-Nation Cultural Foundation (INCFworld.org). Wolf recently crowd-sourced enough funds to shoot for ten weeks in the Nepalese countryside. Featuring Nepali women and their on-going struggle for education and exposure to technology, the footage is both tragic and breathtakingly beautiful. Wolf Price has spent the last 8 years developing educational media and volunteering for social organizations. Through a broad range of progressive multimedia, as well as living a lifestyle that leads by example, he hopes to inspire people to dream big.

For his Nepal film, Wolf travelled to Nepal 7 times in the last 7 years. During that time he documented the evolving status of Nepali women. The aim of the film, says Price, “is to shed light into a variety of subjects. Primarily the realities of women’s struggles in Nepal which are very complex, sometimes progressive but often horrific. I would like the film to connect the viewer with these people and show their lifestyles and exceptional spirit.” He also “would like to demonstrate what can be done by one person about these types of problems”. The project began with a $500 donation, which enabled Price “to host a party for all 60 wives from a small village near Kathmandu.” For more information please visit www.wanderwolf.com
