The Edge of Eden: Living with Grizzlies

The Edge of Eden photosCanada/UK, 2006, 89 min., documentary
Directors: Jeff & Sue Turner

Breathtaking footage of grizzles in a
stunning landscape...

The grizzly bear is considered by many to be the most dangerous animal in the world. But Canadian grizzly bear expert Charlie Russell believes that grizzlies are misunderstood animals and that our fear of them is not only unnecessary, but driving them to extinction. For more than ten years, sixty-five year old Russell has been rescuing orphaned cubs from squalid Russian zoos and releasing them into the last remaining grizzly bear sanctuary in the world in the Southern Kamchatka peninsula. Becoming their surrogate mother, he struggles to teach them everything they need to survive a life in the wild.

Charlie Russell will attend both showings to hold a Q&A and sign books.

The September 11 screening at the Heritage Playhouse will be preceed by a wine and cheese reception: doors at 6:30pm.

The September 16 screening at Raven's Cry Theatre, at 2pm, will be a fundraiser for Cloudline Co-existence, Charlie Russell's bear conservation projects. Special pricing applies to this screening: $9 (season members) and $12 (with temporary membership).
