Wolves From Above is a meditation on a pack of wolves filmed from the air. The elusive animals inhabit a tranquil space where sounds of playful growling, sniffing, and licking feel oddly nearby. Many interactions take place in the video – it is evident that the wolves are communicating, but we as human viewers are not sure what is happening. The film draws the spectator in and allows the viewer to discover a different wolf.
