Premiere Screening of Grizzly in Montana and Wyoming!
The Sierra Club is presenting a premiere screening of the new documentary, Grizzly, on February 5 in Missoula, in Bozeman on March 12, and Sheridan, WY on May 12. Grizzly, which is narrated by Oscar Award-winning actress, Susan Sarandon, tells the story of two individual grizzly bears (one a mother with two cubs, the other a young male bear) living in Yellowstone National Park and also documents the lives of ranchers, politicians, researchers and homeowners living in areas surrounding the park. Shot over the course of four years, Grizzly contains many wildlife sequences rarely, if ever, before filmed. The film follows its main grizzly characters over the course of eight months, highlighting both spectacular grizzly behaviors, such as a male grizzly chasing down a bull elk, and gentle behaviors, such as a female grizzly tenderly nursing and playing with her tiny cubs.
Sierra Club's Grizzly presents the most complete portrayal of Yellowstone's grizzly bears to date. But unlike many previous films that portray grizzlies
as living in a wild landscape, free from humans, Grizzly portrays the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem as a place where humans and wildlife share the landscape; a place where each must adapt to the presence of the other. Over the course of the film, both grizzly characters must confront and overcome a series of obstacles, both natural and human-made. The film uses a compelling and beautiful natural narrative to make it possible for audiences to get to know the 'real nature' of Yellowstone's grizzlies and to better understand the threats they face.
This first-ever film screenings will be held throughout Montana and Wyoming in 2009. The events are free and open to the public. John Shier, the producer, cinematographer, and writer of Grizzly, will be present to meet and answer any questions after the event.
