Wolf Totem

This film is based on a semi-autobiographical novel featuring a Chinese student who is sent to inner Mongolia to teach shepherds and instead learns about the wolf population, indigenous wisdom on human-nature harmony and the way of nomadic life that has sustained the Mongolian people for more than a thousand years but is rapidly disappearing. This movie is set in China, and directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud. It is filmed in Chinese and Mongolian, and shown with English subtitles.

There will be a reception at 6 p.m., followed by the film screening at 6:30 p.m. Contact Yaron Shemer for more information.
