Bear 71 is an interactive documentary that blends the realities of our ever-on, perpetually connected culture with what we believe is wilderness. Try as we might, we’re just not doing as good a job as we think in separating ourselves from the animal kingdom.
This is an incredible video to watch; or rather, to participate in. It’s smartly interactive and immersive, showing us at the same time it involves us, all told from the perspective of a captured, collared and clearly confused female grizzly bear. Very cool. And tragic.
The video here is only the trailer. Go to www.bear71.nfb.ca for the full 20 minutes.
