The Promise

I’ve not watched this yet, but this short film, The Promise, directed by Gabriele Salvatores, looks very relevant to our Company of Wolves conference themes of wolves, sociality, and animality. It’s now online.

The Promise talks about the relationship between man and dog that is retraced in its thousand-year history by the Oscar-winning director through the selection of evocative images remembering that in the beginning it was the wolf and not the dog. At the base of this story there is, in fact, the idea of Pier Giovanni Capellino, founder of Almo Nature, who ran back in time, seeing humans in difficulty that promise wolves perennial respect in exchange for agreeing the pack because some of them became dogs.
