Never Cry Wolf
Directed by Carroll Ballard, Never Cry Wolf is the 1983 film adaption of Farley Mowat’s 1963 autobiography of the same name. Charles Martin Smith stars as a government biologist sent into the wilderness to collect evidence of the grievous harm the wolf population was believed to be causing to the caribou herds. While studying the wolves and struggling to survive in the harsh conditions, he realizes the beliefs held by humans about wolves and their threat to, not only the caribou, but, to many species, is completely false. Rather, he discovers humans represent a far greater threat to the land, and also to the wolves, a species which plays an important role in the ecosystem of the north.
