‘The Phantom Wolves of Sun Valley’
Wood River Valley resident DeSiree’ Fawn’s debut film, “The Phantom Wolves of Sun Valley,” premiered as an official selection of The Film Festival of Colorado in Arvada, Colo., on June 26. The feature documentary covers the controversy over the reintroduction of wolves in the West and focuses on the first state-sanctioned wolf hunt, which took place around the WoodRiverValley during fall 2009. Fawn completed the film while earning a master’s degree in media studies at The New School in New York City.
In addition, “The Phantom Wolves of Sun Valley” recently received an award of merit from The Accolade competition, a national competition that recognizes outstanding work in film, video and television. The film is scheduled to premiere in New York City in early August for The Big Screen Project, a giant outdoor screening venue in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, as an official selection of The Blue Planet Film Festival. It is also an official selection at the Vegas Cine Fest, which takes place in late August.
Fawn will screen “The Phantom Wolves of Sun Valley” at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum on Aug. 10. For updates, visit www.facebook.com/wolfmovie.
