Saturday Afternoon at the Movies – Grizzly Man (2005)

Saturday, December 12, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Members & guests–free with Amazon Prime. To RSVP, please scroll down. Registered attendees will then receive an email the day before the discussion with a link to join via Zoom.

Watch the film any time before the discussion–or enjoy the discussion and be persuaded to view it after! Pieced together from Timothy Treadwell’s actual video footage, Werner Herzog’s remarkable documentary examines the calling that drove Treadwell to live among a tribe of wild grizzly bears on an Alaskan reserve. A devoted conservationist with a passion for adventure, Timothy believed he had bridged the gap between human and beast. When one of the bears he loved and protected tragically turns on him, the footage he shot serves as a window into our understanding of nature and its grim realities.  Village member Mel Washburn will host a discussion of the film via Zoom this Saturday at 3:00 PM.
