NEVER CRY WOLF IS PLAYING AT THE SMITH RAFAEL FILM CENTER
Science on Screen 2021 continues, with Caroll Ballard’s 1983 filmNEVER CRY WOLF featuring Charles Martin Smith, Samson Jorah and Brian Dennehy. Set in the Canadian Arctic, the gorgeously photographed film follows a naïve biologist sent by the government to determine if wolves are to blame for declining caribou populations. Isolated in the wilderness, he forms an unexpected attachment to a pair of wolves, experiences a number of life-altering encounters with nature, and sets out to prove that it is not the wolves that are responsible for the dwindling caribou herds, but a far more dangerous predator. Rated PG. Director: Carroll Ballard (US 1984) 105 min.
The film will be followed by a conversation with Milo Burcham, a wildlife photographer and terrestrial biologist working on Prince William Sound in Alaska.
