When war correspondents move on to the next conflict, a battle is just beginning for those left behind. Economic depression, personal hardships, and PTSD still stifle recovery 20 years after the brutal civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Fortunately for the small mountain town of Livno, an uncommon leader has emerged, giving fellow veterans and their community an unlikely path towards healing. When he was only 20, Lija led the successful defense of his town. Today he leads the Wolves, a multi-ethnic biker club that refuses to let Livno fall victim to the challenges that plague other towns like theirs. Instead, they rally to give blood, offer charity, and secure badly needed hospital supplies. One mission drives them more than any other--protecting the threatened herd of wild horses they met on the front line. Inspired by the horses' spirit of survival, the Wolves are determined to control their own fate and finally emerge from the shadow of war. From its rare look at life inside a motorcycle club to the meditative beauty on the mountains, Among Wolves opens wild new worlds that feel intimate thanks to American filmmaker Shawn Convey. To create this stunningly filmed, poetically rendered tale of trauma and healing, Convey spent six years in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The result, unlike more painful postwar stories, is one that vibrates with hope. Among Wolves was featured at festivals like Chicago International, St. Louis International, Wales international, Big Sky, RiverRun and more, winning awards including Best Director, Best Documentary Film, and Best of Fest.
