Bikers in Bosnia Save a Herd of Wild Horses, Their Community, Themselves
Documentary of their story in final stages of Kickstarter campaign
The film tells the extraordinary true story of war veterans turned biker club with a healing heart. Rather than outlaw culture, they are dedicated to humanitarian actions and an unlikely pledge to defend a herd of wild horses in the mountains of Livno, Bosnia & Herzegovina. The film, if successfully funded, will be released to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of the end of the brutal Bosnian War, which the Wolves motorcycle club would like to help their community recover from and move beyond, if not forget. Unlike most postwar films from the region, Among Wolves shows how a few compassionate and determined individuals can make a difference in changing the attitudes and fortunes of those around them.
“Among Wolves is so close to being in theaters. With the generous help of friends, family, and fans of the story, we have overcome most of the challenges. Thank you. It wasn’t easy,” says Shawn Convey, director and producer of the documentary. “The film is almost ready and it’s time for the polish. Though most of the team has been working free for years, we need to pay the people that get it ready for the big screen. That means post-production, color correction, sound, etc. It’s not cheap, but with your help we can make this the gorgeous, immersive, and cinematic film we’ve always wanted to show the world.”
Beneath the muscle, machismo and machinery, Among Wolves is a story about war veterans, trauma, camaraderie, and healing through caring for fellow man and nature. The Kickstarter campaign for Among Wolves runs until the very early morning of June 1, 2015 and can be found at HELP.AMONGWOLVESFILM.COM (https://www.kickstarter.com/
