About the movie…
Grizzly Man explores the life and gruesome death of amateur grizzly bear expert and wildlife preservationist Timothy Treadwell. The film is a powerful cautionary tale about modern man’s relationship to wild nature as it follows Treadwell’s journeys to Alaska, where he lived among the grizzlies and grew to love them. Treadwell’s crusade to defend the grizzlies tragically ended when he–and his girlfriend–were attacked and killed by a rogue grizzly in October 2003. Grizzly Man is a gripping and epic adventure story in the tradition of Jon Krakauer’s classic Into Thin Air and Into the Wild (overview from http://www.grizzlyman.com).
