We spent a week in northern Wisconsin learning how to track wolves. Traditionally used for hunting, today the modern science and art of animal tracking is widely practiced in the fields of wildlife biology, conservation and wildlife management.
The wolf population in Wisconsin has grown exponentially. In 2012, the federal government removed the Grey Wolf from their endangered species list opening the door for the state to legalize wolf hunting.
Directed by Petter Ringbom.
Executive produced by Openbox.
Music by Tim Harrington.
An artist paints a caricature of South African president Jacob Zuma that provokes a lawsuit, death threats and a massive street protest. Around this incident, Shield and Spear explores a constellation of stories about identity, art, race, and freedom of expression in South Africa, twenty years into democracy.
