Stories Of Wolves: The Lobo Returns (2013)

1

“Stories of Wolves” is about the recovery efforts for Mexican Gray Wolves, the most endangered land mammal in all of North America. Less than 100 wolves remain in the wild in Arizona and New Mexico. 

The film has many sub-plots because of the dynamic relationship of the wolves to the various communities who now share the wolves' habitat: the ranchers, the conservationists, the Native American cultures, and the other animals who depend upon the wolves’ presence to maintain a healthy ecological system. As much as it is a film about wolves, it is also about the people of New Mexico, Arizona and the Northern hemisphere who are making a stand for human-wolf coexistence. Includes the director's  story about her field work with the wolves. Ultimately, though it is about the vanishing wildness inside and outside of us. We all belong in the Web Of Life!

Director's statement: It is my heart's desire to aid in the recovery of the human-wolf relationship of coexistence and mutual respect. My book chronicling my field work with the wolves entitled "Wolves and Humans-A new story of coexistence" is available at: elkeduerr.com/book/

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations, while 99% of our library is free to access and always will be. The pay-per-view films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patrons, we partner with filmmakers and distributors to provide access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 23 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, feel free to get in touch!
