Democracy is in crisis. A new generation of elected leaders are dismantling freedom and democracy as we know it.
Filmed over three years in five countries, FREEDOM FOR THE WOLF is an epic investigation into this new regime of illiberal democracy. From the young students of Hong Kong, 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.
Donald Trump is the latest and perhaps most dangerous to assume power.
Philosopher Isaiah Berlin warned against this political hijacking long ago, “Freedom for the wolves has often meant death for the sheep.”
Now the wolves are on the rise. Can they be defeated?
A ground-breaking original statement on the status quo of global politics, FREEDOM FOR THE WOLF is the first film that provides the global context for understanding the Trump phenomenon.
FREEDOM FOR THE WOLF is produced by Camilla Hall and Patrick Hamm who recently completed COPWATCH which premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. Executive Producers include BAFTA winner Nick Fraser (MAN ON WIRE, PUSSY RIOT: A PUNK PRAYER, NOTES ON BLINDNESS) and Stephen Robert Morse (AMANDA KNOX).
