Freedom for the Wolf

Freedom and democracy are in danger, but what does freedom really mean? Freedom for the Wolf studies the state of democracy and freedom in Hong Kong, Tunisia, India and the United States of America.

The film shows us politicians in contrast to local groups and artists. There are different aspects to freedom. Civic organizations and researchers offer us important points of view. Representative democracy is not flawless, as is proven by nationalism, religion and many individual politicians.

Democracy is even said to be in a crisis, which is escalated by the economic and social problems in USA and elsewhere. ”For me, freedom means my job”, says a Ford employee, who once supported Obama, but still voted for Trump in the latest elections.

”I don’t believe in historical inevitabilities”, states Professor Francis Fukuyama. In other words, democracy is only saved by fighting for it.
