The following is what Maine International Film Festival is saying about this made in Minnesota film.
“In this beautiful and important documentary, filmmaker Julia Huffman travels to Minnesota and into wolf country to pursue the deep intrinsic value of perhaps the most unjustly maligned animal on the face of the planet.”
“Medicine of the Wolf centers on the remarkable, world-renowned environmentalist and National Geographic photographer Jim Brandenburg, who has photographed, studied and been on the ground with wolves for 45 years—longer than anyone in history. As our guide, Brandenburg enables us to see the world of the wolf as we have never seen it before. The film also has a crucial message for us: The gray wolf must be preserved on the endangered species list.”

In March of this year I did an interview with Julia Huffman. The following is an excerpt from that interview.
“Then there is the director, producer and screen writer of this remarkable film about wolves. I’ve come to know Julia Huffman through her work, finding her to be a compassioniate wolf advocate. Her creative attributes drive her to look for answers as to why some humans love wolves while others hate them.” Read the full interview here http://wolvesofdouglascountywisconsin.com/2015/03/26/medicine-of-the-wolf-world-premier-april-11-12-2015interview-with-julia-huffman/
Medicine of the Wolf is a very personable and emotionally charged film about the lives of wild wolves and those who care about them. I recommend you bring tissues. ~Rachel
