After centuries of being hunted out of misunderstanding, Mexican gray wolves are returning to the American West with the support of conservationists who hope to rewrite our misperceptions about their behavior.
This project is complete and will be starting its festival run soon.
The California Wolf Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, dedicated to the return of wild wolves to their natural habitat and to the people who share the landscape with them.

A critically endangered species native to the Southwest United States and Mexico, the Mexican gray wolf was saved by the Endangered Species Act in 1976. Today, there are less than 300 individuals out in the wild.
Through captive breeding, wild release, and public education, CWC works to ensure that wolves, livestock, and people can peacefully thrive in today's world.
Surviving Lies was a collaborative effort between two filmmakers passionate about the conservation of endangered species around the world. Jessica Wilson produced, co-edited, and captured sound in the field, working diligently to bring about support for the preservation of Mexican gray wolves.
