Shorts Block 7: Run with the Wolves
Four short films that explore the world of one of Earth's most impressive--and misunderstood--predators.

Meet the Real Wolf
3 minutes, Directed by Thomas Winston and Avela Grenier, US
What happens when fairy tales and reality collide? Throughout history, myths about the “big bad wolf” have generated fear and concern that has crept out of our storybooks and into the real world. MEET THE REAL WOLF introduces a new chapter where the apex predator becomes the protagonist, changing the narrative of the ecosystems they are rebuilding.

Canis Lupus Colorado
18 minutes, Directed by Eric Bendick and Thomas Winston, US
Ghosts are stirring in Colorado's high country. They haunt the trees, the water, the animals - the very fabric of the land itself. Gray wolves shaped this place for eons only to disappear nearly overnight. CANIS LUPUS COLORADO is the story of the past, present, and future of Colorado's now extinct native wolf population.

Operation Wolf Patrol: Poacher's Kingdom
12 minutes, Directed by Joe Brown, US
OPERATION WOLF PATROL: POACHER’S KINGDOM is a short documentary that focuses on the controversial group "Wolf Patrol." The film follows Rod Coronado, Wolf Patrol's leader, as he endeavors to raise awareness about wolf poaching in Northern, Wisconsin. The film also tackles the issue of Wisconsin's new "Hunter Harassment" law, which makes it illegal to take photos of hunters on public lands.

MT6: Is There a Place for the Wolf in Germany?
19 minutes, Directed by Sandra Spethmann, Germany
The film tells the story of a young wolf struggling to find a place in a country that is no longer used to his kind. Following him on his journey, we search for an answer to the question: Is there a place for the wolf in Germany?
