For Ages 10 and above, 88 min., "Wolf Summer." In Norwegian with English Subtitles. Winner of Norway’s Amanda Award for Best Children’s or Youth Film. When the summer course in outdoor climbing is cancelled, twelve-year-old Kim decides that she will solo climb the “East Wall" - as her late father did when he was twelve. Kim is injured in a fall, and wakes up trapped in a shack with a mother wolf and her cub. Realizing that hunters are chasing the wolves, Kim is forced to pick sides and enters into a heated conflict between animal and man. With suspense, action, and adventure, Wolf Summer explores themes of friendship, family, loyalty, and courage. Please note for sensitive children: the film contains scenes with hunters and guns, and some animal carcasses are shown.
