Source: Register-Herald Medicine of the Wolf, an award winning and highly praised documentary, is showing at the Historic Lewis Theatre on Thursday, May 26 at 7pm.
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. Immediately following the screening will be a talkback Q&A with Julia. Admission is $10/ $6 for full time students. Dr. Jane Goodall wrote “It is powerful, informative and moving, and as I watched I was first enchanted and then enraged. I urge you to watch this compelling and courageous film and tell everyone you know to watch it as well.”
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. www.medicineofthewolf.com
