The Sedona International Film Festival — in partnership with Plan B to Save Wolves and Wolf Dogs — will host a night of films about wolves on Thursday, May 5, 2022. 

The films are by director Jean-Michel Bertrand and the event will screen two of his breath-taking documentaries, "Valley of the Wolves" and "Wolf Walk," about his observation of wolves in France.

“Valley of the Wolves” will show at 4 p.m., and “Wolf Walk” will screen at 7 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

After the success of “Valley of the Wolves”, Jean-Michel Bertrand returns to their tracks with a new documentary, “Wolf Walk”.

The film follows the filmmaker as he observes a young gray wolf who has just left the pack to create his own territory, find a young female, and start a family. It tells the great mystery of the dispersion of wolves: how young wolves leave the territory where they were born and how these adventurers set out to conquer new territories. Finally, after disappearing for almost 80 years and despite the obstacles, the wolves find their former habitats.

Expressing one man’s endless fascination with a canine still wrongly viewed as a mere predator, “Wolf Walk” takes us on a journey through the remotest areas of the French Alps, a road movie through the wilderness. A universal message is contained in this story of a man’s passionate love affair with nature.

Also will be Sedona resident Michael Schroeder and his video about the Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery Program and his support of their cross-fostering efforts. Mike generously donates his time and plane to fly Mexican Gray Wolf puppies to various destinations as part of the cross-fostering program to preserve the species.
