Werner Herzog is a German film director, producer, screenwriter, actor, and opera director. He is often associated with the German New Wave movement (also called New German Cinema). His films often feature heroes with impossible dreams, people with unique talents in obscure fields, or individuals who find themselves in conflict with nature. Herzog was granted exclusive access to over 100 hours of video shot by amateur naturalist, wildlife advocate and troubled loner Timothy Treadwell, who spent 13 summers in Alaska’s Katmai National Park, where he grew to know and love the grizzly bears that lived there.
The screening is non-profit and aims for studies and research only.
