Special film screening of 'Wolf' in Wageningen

Friday evening, September 23 at 7 pm, there will be a special film screening of 'Wolf' in the Heerenstraat theater in Wageningen. A unique opportunity to discuss the wolf in the Netherlands with the director of the film and animal ethicist Bernice Bovenkerk and researcher in human-animal relations Maarten Jacobs.

Organised by Wageningen University & Research, Wageningen Environmental Research

Fri 23 September 2022 19:00 to 21:20

You could not have missed it: the wolf is back in the Netherlands. This is peculiar since the wolf disappeared from the Netherlands 150 years ago. Filmmaker Cees van Kempen started filming before a pair of wolves had permanently settled in the Netherlands. The past four years Van Kempen and his team have spent more than 1,000 days in the forests of Germany and the Netherlands.

Matthijs van Nieuwkerk did the voice-over. Hugh Jansman, an animal ecologist at Wageningen Environmental Research, provided background information and images for the documentary.
