Among Wolves

The Wolves are no ordinary biker club as revealed in this gorgeously shot, surprisingly intimate documentary of trauma and survival. Still struggling from the aftermath of the Bosnian War, this multi-ethnic club organizes charity for their small mountain town and defends the threatened herd of wild horses they first met on the frontline. Out there, with the horses, they confront their past and reclaim that territory as a space for healing.
