OVERVIEW OF THE FILM
This documentary film has the working title, “Wolves Unmasked”. It focuses on the current state of global climate change and environmental degradation and the message wolves are trying to deliver to humanity through what they represent within the context of that environment. This message is summed up in the words of Chief Geswanouth Slahoot of the Sleil-Waututh Nation:
“If you talk to the animals they will talk with you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them you will not know them, and what you do not know you will fear. What one fears one destroys.”Chief Geswanouth Slahoot
The wolves represent the wilderness, nature, the environment and natural world; humans, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, continue to subdue, exploit for profit and kill off what is not useful or threatens profits and wolves are trying to communicate their message for us to stop and let them begin to restore and heal the environment. Our aim with this film is to translate this message into a format that is accessible to and assimilable for humans to best act on this message.
The evident purpose of this documentary seeks to re-dress wolf misconceptions, balance public perception and provide factual information regarding the importance of wolves to the long term sustainable recovery of the environment and what individuals can do to support wolf conservation. Nevertheless, this isn’t just another wolf documentary. So far, we have successfully portrayed and summarised aspects of this story relevant to current conditions communicating the issues that we are facing in relation to wolf conservation, climate change and the environment and humanity’s attitude towards nature in general. We have interviewed the leading thinkers, scientists and researchers to include Doug Smith, Dave Mech, Chris Packham, Shaun Ellis, Anneka Svenska, Tsa, (UKWCS), George Hyde (Wildwood), Marco Adda and more interviews pending.
