(SALEM, Ore. ) - On Tuesday evening, July 15th, Salem Cinema is thrilled to invite director Clemens Schenk as well as Amaroq Weiss from the Center for Biological Diversity to join us for Q&A following OR7 – The Journey!
In 1973, with only 500 wolves left In the contiguous United States, the grey wolf was added to the endangered species act, setting the species on a slow path of recovery.
Now, states are fighting to have that status removed, opening the door for hunters and ranchers to once again decimate the wolf population.
This fascinating documentary is about the incredible journey of OR-7, a grey wolf which was collared in Oregon and eventually dispersed from his pack. A journey that tells the story not only of OR-7, but of the wolf as a species in America. It is a journey of survival. A journey of inspiration.
This is a film with two objectives: one, to document OR7′s incredible journey and two, to educate the 80% of the general public which is unaware of the plight of the wolves, by clarifying the myths and misconceptions that surround these magnificent animals.
