Nuisance Bear

Nuisance Bear

Churchill, Manitoba is famous as an international destination for photographing polar bears. We’ve seen the majestic images and the classic wildlife TV programs – but what does the bear see of us? This unconventional and visually arresting documentary shifts the perspective for a revealing look at a day in the life of a polar bear as it navigates an obstacle course of tourists and conservation officers. Nuisance Bear highlights the increasingly narrow and treacherous boundary between human and animal realms, asking audiences to consider the ways in which we interact with wildlife and if these relationships are sustainable.
