Wolf Totem

Wolf Totem depicts the dying culture of the Mongols- the ancestors of the Mongol hordes who at one time terrorized the world- and the parallel extinction of the animal they believe to be sacred: the fierce and otherworldly Mongolian Wolf.

Searching for spirituality, Beijing intellectual Chen Zhen travels to the pristine grasslands of Inner Mongolia to live among the nomadic Mongols-a proud, brave, and ancient race of people who coexist in perfect harmony with their unspeakably beautiful but cruel natural surroundings. Their philosophy of maintaining a balance with nature is the ground stone of their religion, a kind of cult of the wolf.

Testimonials

“As a VFX supervisor, I can offer a director a better C.G.I. animal if I have the proper live elements to work with as reference. It’s still a long process, but having the pleasure of working with Andrew Simpson and his wolves on Wolf Totem was a great experience. His understanding of what I required, along with his ability to train the wolves was very impressive.”
