This film is family friendly.

Wolf Spirit is an inspiring and up-close look at the seldom-seen world of wild wolves viewed by National Geographic photographer Jim Brandenburg. Superbly told via the lens of filmmaker Julia Huffman, and with a sensitivity that truly honors the role of the wolf in today's American landscape.

Director's Statement

The collection of wolf sequences, landscapes and drone footage seen in the film were all shot by world renown National Geographic photographer Jim Brandenburg over a period of several years. Most who are unfamiliar with wild wolves, don't realize that to actually photograph a wolf up close as Jim has is extremely difficult and rare. Wolves are mostly elusive and untrusting of humans due to the hunting culture. Sadly, since the 2014 wolf hunting and trapping season Jim has only seen one wolf on his land in Northern Minnesota. At one time Jim was seeing and photographing the loose knit pack of 19 wolves that he called his friends and family.
