THE PHANTOM WOLVES OF SUN VALLEY (USA, 2011, 56 min.)
Living in the Anthropocene: The Age of Humans
Washington, D.C. Premiere Idaho’s first legal wolf hunting season is quickly approaching and the tension is rising between “wolf lovers” and “wolf haters.” The Phantom Wolves of Sun Valley documents the war over wolves taking place in the West, the result of a successful reintroduction of the species into the same area in which they were eradicated nearly a century ago. The film was made with the insider perspective of DeSiree’ Fawn, a fifth generation native to the Sun Valley area, who is determined to understand the conflict over wolves and the culture war it represents. Directed, produced and edited by DeSiree’ Fawn.
Introduced by Jeffrey Stine, Curator, Environmental History, National Museum of American History. Discussion with filmmaker DeSiree’ Fawn and Donald E. Moore, Associate Director for Animal Care Sciences, Smithsonian National Zoo, follows screening.
FREE. No reservations required.
