Mission Wolf: Experiment in Living Film Screening
7:30 PM
Historic Jones Theater
Description:
A special screening of the new documentary Mission Wolf: Experiment in Living, followed by a discussion with the filmmakers and staff from Southern Colorado's Mission: Wolf refuge.

Film synopsis:

Near the southern edge of the Sangre de Christo mountains lives a community of volunteers who seek to nurture themselves just as they nurture the wolves they care deeply about.

Mission Wolf: Experiment in Living is the story of rescued wolves on wild lands in Colorado and the volunteers who keep them alive. The stunningly beautiful hills near the Sangre de Cristo mountains is the home of a wolf refuge by the name of Mission:Wolf. It is an odd place—off the grid, snowed in in winter, run by an often-changing group of young people who strive to have a small footprint on the planet and to nurture themselves as they nurture the wolves. As Will, one of the volunteers, says, “You can be healed in whatever way you need to be.” However, it’s not always easy. The film will appeal to viewers interested in how wilderness impacts people and people impact wilderness. It’s also deeply about wolves, what’s left of wildness in the West of our country, and how an experiment in living impacts any of us who strive to leave mainstream urban life behind.
