Among Wolves

A FILM BY: Shawn Convey
WRITTEN BY: Kevin Ripp

***Director Shawn Convey in attendance for post-film Q&As of all screenings***

The Wolves are no ordinary biker club as revealed in this gorgeously shot, surprisingly intimate documentary of trauma and hope. 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.

In Bosnian with English subtitles

Farmer/Veteran

A FILM BY: Alix Blair, Jeremy Lange, D.L. Anderson

***Director D.L. Anderson in person for a post-film Q&A***

Home from three combat tours in Iraq, Alex Sutton forges a new identity as a farmer, hatching chicks and raising goats on 43 acres in rural North Carolina. He dives into life on the farm with his new love Jessica, but cannot shake the lingering traumas of war. The stories he tells about battlefield experiences become unmoored from reality as he cycles between states of heightened awareness and "feeling zombified" from a cocktail of prescriptions meant to keep him stable. For the viewer, as for Alex, what to believe about his past is uncertain. The farm becomes a terrain to unearth what is buried, what it really means to be "the perfect soldier," and where to find the way forward

The Peacemaker

A FILM BY: James Demo
WRITTEN BY: James Demo

***Director James Demo in person for a post-film Q&A***

THE PEACEMAKER is an intimate portrait of international peacemaker Padraig O'Malley, who helps make peace for others but struggles to find it for himself. The film takes us from Padraig's isolated life in Cambridge, Massachusetts to some of the most dangerous crisis zones on Earth – from Northern Ireland to Kosovo, Nigeria to Iraq – over five years - as he works a peacemaking model based on his recovery from addiction. We meet Padraig in the third act of his life in a race against time to find some kind of salvation for both the world and himself.
