Alpha  is directed by Albert Hughes and filmed in Canada.  It takes place   in Upper Paleolithic Europe  20,000 years ago.  A small tribe of hunter-gatherers prepares for a hunting expedition  to secure their winter's food.  The film stars Kodi Smit-McPhee as a young hunter who befriends an injured wolf, with Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson as his father.  The wolf is played by Chuck, a five-year-old Czechosolovakian Wolfdog.  Released in August 2018 the film  opens this weekend at the  historic Monarch Theatre in Medicine Hat, Alberta.
