The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of “Gray Area” showing Thursday, April 20 at 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre in celebration of Sedona Wolf Week. The event will feature a special introduction and Q&A with filmmaker Alan Lacy.

In the American Southwest, a unique species of wolf unlike any other is making a comeback. Considered extinct nearly 40 years ago, the little known Mexican gray wolf has slowly pulled back from the very brink — against all odds.

From a founding population of just seven animals, this species has slowly grown to a current wild population of approximately 100, only to face a new threat from within: its own genetics. As part of a bold recovery mission, one lone wolf is given a chance to offer new hope for the survival of her species.

In telling this story, narrated by Chris Morgan, “Gray Area” explores whether there can be a balanced and sustainable future where ranchers, conservationists, locals, and biologists alike can coexist with this apex predator.

For first-time filmmaker Lacy, the vision of the film was to present all sides of the issue and what the future may hold for this wolf species.

"This film will offer a unique perspective on the plight of the Mexican gray wolf and will be an invaluable educational tool to help spread the word about this important species." ~ Endangered Wolf Center

"We applaud the efforts of individuals like Alan Lacy who take their passion for the survival of the Mexican gray wolf and transform it into action." ~ Wolf Haven International
