'Grizzly Man' - Recommended Documentary
'Grizzly Man' is a 2005 documentary by German director Werner Herzog. It tells the story of bear enthusiast Timothy Treadwell who was killed and eaten by a bear, along with his girlfriend, in 2003.
The film contains Timothy’s own footage of grizzly bears containing his interactions with them. Timothy Treadwell spent 13 summers at Katmai National Park and Preserve, Alaska he set out to film the bears to raise public awareness of the problems faced by the bears.
Overtime, Treadwell lost sight of his goal and began to believe that the bears trusted him and allowed him to approach them. This led to him being warned by the park officials, as this was both dangerous to him and the bears.
The documentary looks at humans relationships with nature and asks the question whether there is a line between us and wildlife.
It’s a mesmerising documentary and the footage Treadwell shot is truly incredible. It is done with sensitivity regarding the lives that were lost. But does bring up and important argument as to whether wild animals can ever have a peaceful relationship with humans.
