Cees van Kempen / NL, 2021 / 90 min.
It’s a miracle: the wolf is back in the Netherlands! Documentary maker Cees van Kempen follows the cub Scout who, once adult, was the first wolf to reach the Veluwe nature reserve. Unique portrait of a top predator and shy family animal that prefers to avoid humans.
Wolves in the Netherlands? A few years ago that still sounded like a pipe dream. After all, hadn’t the last wolf been shot around 1870? And wasn’t that a definitive 'good riddance!' to the animal that wanted to eat Red Riding Hood and was a dangerous competitor for hunters?
