Event UPDATE: MORE True Wolf Screenings – Goes Worldwide!

What Does It Mean To Be Wild?

True Wolf
a film by Rob Whitehair | a Tree & Sky Media Arts production

When fate intervenes, a young Montana couple gives up everything for the love of an abandoned wolf pup named Koani. But could they even live with this beast? As wolves are wild creatures who cannot be domesticated, Bruce and Pat are forced to live by Koani’s ways, not vice-versa.

True Wolf tells the captivating story of an inseparable team — a wolf named Koani, a dog named Indy, and a married couple — who eat, breathe, sleep and work together, facing dangers, sharing adventures, and forming bonds that last a lifetime.

What is it like to live with a wolf? Where do you come up with 1,200 pounds of meat each year for her? How do you walk a wolf? Bruce and Pat love Koani so much that they do things no human should do,
ultimately turning part of their living room into a wolf den.

Deciding to give Koani’s life purpose, they set out across the country to take her eye to eye with the public to force people to decide for themselves if this animal is as “big and bad” as the legends suggest.

What follows is a 16-year journey that takes this unusual pack to the brink of what it means to be wild.

Here’s what reviewers are saying

“You won’t soon forget the ending.”
— Sally Mauk, NPR

“Provocative”¦Succeeds at least partly in defanging the legend and questioning its value”
— John Hartl, Seattle Times

“With wolves under threat, the new documentary, “True Wolf” is the perfect antidote to the misguided notions about this magnificent animal”
— The Humane Society of the United States

The ending is “”¦one of the really amazing moments in documentary film I’ve seen”¦The value of the film is that it raises as many questions as it does answer questions about the whole notion of our relationship to wild animals.”
— Sally Mauk, News Director, KUFM Montana Public Radio
