Shown as part of the Werner Herzog Retrospective

GRIZZLY MAN (USA, 2005, 103 min.)

In nature there are boundaries. This docudrama centers on amateur grizzly bear expert Timothy Treadwell who challenged that concept. For thirteen consecutive summers he journeyed to the Alaskan Peninsula to live with and study bears. In October 2003, he and his girlfriend Amie Huguenard were attacked and killed by a rogue bear. Through over one hundred hours of footage filmed by Timothy Treadwell, Werner Herzog offers us a moving portrait of this couple’s unusual vision of life’s possibilities. Directed by Werner Herzog. Produced by Erik Nelson.
