Democracy is in crisis. A new generation of elected leaders are dismantling freedom and democracy as we know it. A ground-breaking, powerful and original statement on the status of quo of global politics, FREEDOM FOR THE WOLF is the first film that provides the global context for understanding the Trump phenomenon.
Filmed over three years in five countries, from the young Umbrella movement students of HongKong, to a rapper in post-Arab Spring Tunisia and the viral comedians of Bollywood, we discover how people from every corner of the globe are fighting the same struggle. They are fighting against elected leaders who trample on human rights, minorities, and their political opponents.
International sales for FREEDOM FOR THE WOLF are being handled by Cinephil.
“Epic in scale… Highly original and thought provoking“
