Wolves at the Borders

  • Czech Republic
Audio Tracks 

The Broumov region owes its genius loci to - among other things - wolves. After more than two hundred years, they began reappearing in the local forests. Some locals welcome their return. They believe they can restore the natural balance and mitigate the effects of the catastrophic drought. Sheep and livestock farmers, on the other hand, see these wild animals as a threat to their livelihoods. They do not intend to bow down to an invisible enemy. Martin Páv stands as an impartial observer in the middle of an increasingly heated dispute. His visually captivating documentary shows how the landscape and the human desire for its control are also inextricably imprinted on interpersonal relationships and politics.

“When something new comes up, we based our reactions more on mere assumptions than on reality.” M. Páv
