ROCKLAND — Rockland Public Library presents a screening of the 1983 film Never Cry Wolf (based on the Farley Mowat book) on Thursday, May 16, at 6:30 p.m.
The 105-minute film is directed by Carroll Ballard and stars Charles Martin Smith, Brian Dennehy, and Zachary Ittimangnaq.
It tells the story of a life-changing experience for a biologist studying the wolves in Canada’s inhospitable North. A young biologist named Tyler (Smith) is sent by the Canadian government to “prove” that the wolves are depleting the caribou herds, but what he finds is a natural world in perfect harmony.
Dumped unprepared in the wilds by a hard drinking bush pilot (Dennehy), Tyler learns survival skills from an aged Eskimo (Ittimangnaq) who saves his life and the rules of coexistence from a neighboring wolf.
The event, sponsored by Friends of Rockland Public Library, will take place in the Community Room and is free and open to the public.
The Library is located at 80 Union St. FMI: 594-0310.
