- Environmental Film Festival: TRUE WOLF
Join us for the screening of this film. Here's the description: TRUE WOLF (USA, 2012, 76 min.) Washington, D.C. Premiere This is the story of a wolf called Koani, who, with the help of her human companions, became an ambassador for her species, traveling the country to help raise awareness about wolves and challenge both the age-old perception of the Big Bad Wolf and the New Age portrayal of the wolf as a noble savage. True Wolf follows Koani’s life and journey; it is also the tale of a wolf and the way she changed lives, most of all those of Pat Tucker and Bruce Weide. Koani and her humans, Pat and Bruce, presented 1,400 programs about wolves to 200,000 people in museums, classrooms and venues across America to give people a face-to-face experience with a wolf. The film explores Bruce and Pat's relationship with Koani, who, because she was born in captivity, could never be allowed to run free. For Bruce and Pat, despite all their efforts to meet Koani’s needs, they would have to face the painful truth that they could not fulfill her greatest desire – to be free. As she would prove time and time again, she was a wolf – and wolves belong in the wild. Directed by Rob Whitehair. Produced by Pam Voth. Executive Producers: Chris Palmer and Bruce Weide.
