My documentary feature, Freedom for the Wolf, won the Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature at the Slamdance Film Festival! This is such a great honour both to the film and the large team of people who sacrificed so much to make such an ambitious film a reality. The entire team are thrilled that the audience picked our film as the festival favorite as its shows that people are hungry for films that are idea-driven and tackle the big questions of our time. And we picked up a rave review from Slug Magazine:
The visuals are gorgeous, the message is powerful and the footage is at times heartbreaking, but all of these elements expose the truth about who is involved with protesting their leaders, what their reasons are for doing so and how these elected officials have been reacting to their cries.
I gave an interview to Resit Radio about the film and the current state of resistance politics in the U.S. and beyond, which you can listen to here. I also did an interview with Mountain Morning Show on Park City TV to promote our screenings.
Just returned from an intense week at IDFA: five screenings of Freedom for the Wolf and pitching a new project at the IDFA Forum. All five screenings sold out three days before the festival began, every theatre was packed, and the question and answer sessions were lively and fun. We got great reviews from Filmuforia, Dirty Movies, and made VICE‘s “top ten” docs of the festival. I gave an interview to the IDFA Daily about my transition from academia into filmmaking and I caught up with Dangerous Minds and gave an interview about how the stories in Freedom for the Wolf are progressing. And we released the trailer. On top of all that, we found out that the film will be screening at the Slamdance Film Festival in January 2018!
