Short Documentary

John Ramer has worked in animal sanctuaries most of his adult life, often without pay, and feels this is his life’s calling. John’s experiences working with captive wolves have left him deeply changed, driving him to share his knowledge and passion with others in the hope that wild wolves might one day return to Colorado’s open lands. Filmed entirely at a remote wolf sanctuary in the Wet Mountains of southern Colorado, Wolf Call asks us to rethink our relationship to wild and captive animals, as well as the world we together inhabit.
