AMONG WOLVES by director Shawn Convey is an observational documentary film about those who struggle to heal long after war’s end. The Wolves are a rare breed, a multi-ethnic motorcycle club led by Bosnian War veterans. In the mountains where they once fought, they now defend the threatened herd of wild horses with whom they once shared the front line. Since the war, a harsh environment, poachers, and urbanization have threatened the herd. Stirred by their spirit of survival, the Wolves fight for them and organize ever more ambitious humanitarian efforts for their town and region. In helping others, they discover a new kind of freedom. In working together, they get ever closer to controlling their own fate and finally emerging from the shadow of war.
After selling out all screenings and winning the prestigious Chicago Award at its Chicago International world premiere, AMONG WOLVES has spent the last 24 months playing to enthusiastic audiences at festivals on 4 continents, bringing home awards that include Best Director, Best of Fest, and Triumph of the Human Spirit.
The film will be screening for a week-long special event beginning February 8 entitled “AMONG WOLVES and Friends” at the iconic Music Box Theatre in Chicago with curated guest screenings, panels and other events celebrating the film and independent documentary filmmaking. The film will then hit VOD/DVD nationwide on February 12.
