‘OR7 – The Journey’,  is a mesmerizing new documentary film about one adventurous young wolf, from Northeast Oregon, who struck out for new country and ended up making history.

While the reasons behind the radio-collared wolf OR7’s extensive journey were most likely humble and based on instincts alone, the moment he stepped into the state of California, in the fall of 2011, OR-7 became a worldwide celebrity. He’s the first wild wolf known to make tracks in California in almost 90 years.

This amazing story has been recreated for the big screen by accomplished Oregon filmmaker, Clemens Schenk. While initially intrigued by this one wolf’s story, researching  the film led the producer to discover issues and social attitudes negatively impacting all wild wolves in the U.S. Exposing the shameful way American wildlife agencies are treating wild wolves became a driving force behind the movie. While telling the story of this captivating wolf’s journey, the film is interspersed with thought-provoking interviews and information that will shake the status quo of so-called “wolf management” in America.

OR7 – The Journey promises to be a treat for the eyes that will touch your heart and soul as well. Order your tickets for the world premiere of ‘OR-7 -The Journey’ in Portland, Oregon, on Sunday, May 25th, here:

Starring in the film is Niwa, a captive-born ambassador wolf, named after the wolf advocacy group, the Northern Idaho Wolf Alliance, which also goes by “NIWA.” Clemens Schenk visited the Wolf People wolf education center in Northern Idaho three times throughout 2013,  to spend time filming Niwa running free in a five acre enclosure at the Wolf People compound. Niwa is a big, sociable, fun-loving wolf with a heart of gold, and he had no trouble at all charming Clemens into picking him as the star! Niwa’s petite and princess-like mate, Maiah, has a few cameo moments in the film, as do the rambunctious young Wolf People pups, Mahaway and Cuan.

‘Let the Wolves run free’ by Ratty and the Watchers

Wolf Pack Howling On Lake

Your amber eyes and coat of ashes,
I see sorrow in your face,
With the pain the young one thrashes,
a trophy for the human race,
Hunted down I feel the heartache,
from ancient dens the wolves must flee,
Misunderstood beliefs we must break,
education is the key.

I saw a pack when in full flight,
Brothers / sisters chasing starlight,
Their hearts are yearning to be free of our world.

In the night an Alpha male howls,
it’s a song of such beauty,
All they hear is Hollywood growls,
and not the call to his family,
Never safe on the lonely mountain,
the guns are heard in the deep valley,
Another notch on the butt of a rifle,
a cub added to the death tally.

Shadows dancing on moonlit skies,
Leave them be don’t wave them goodbye,
All they want is to be free of our world.

Look in his face, Look in his eyes, there’s only grace, there’s no disguise
Look at their life, what do you see, don’t give them strife, let them run free,
Let the Wolves run free!!
