L’ORSO DELLE ALPI - UN AMICO RITORNATO
Italy / 1997 / 25'
Exterminated by hunters between 1700 and 1800 in the whole of the Alps, today the brown bear is beginning to repopulate the woods of the eastern Alps. This documentary illustrates the behaviour and biology of this shy and reserved alpine mammal. It also shows how its presence need not upset the life and work of humans. The film shows the most obvious signs the bear leaves behind revealing its presence for anyone who wishes to look for in the alpine woods.
