Being Caribou (72 minutes) is a National Film Board of Canada production directed by Leanne Allison and Diana Wilson. It had been broadcast on CBC's Nature of Things and across the US on the Documentary Channel and LinkTV. It won a Gemini Award for best nature documentary in 2005. Composed of footage shot by Leanne during the epic 1500 km long trip, it seamlessly weaves stunning close-ups of the caribou migration with the intimate video diaries of the two people following this endangered herd.
'Being Caribou records an amazing odyssey of a remarkable couple. It is a record of sheer courage, stamina, and stubbornness- to find and follow on foot North America's counterpart to Africa's wildebeest migration." David Suzuki
