dir Vladislav Grishin, Irina Zhuravleva, Russia, 2018, 52 min., documentary, debut
The South Kamchatka Federal Sanctuary is often called a bear paradise. The LESFILM production team headed there and spent seven months observing and filming hidden secrets the newborn bear cubs’ daily lives throughout their first year on Earth. 'Kamchatka Bears. Life Begins' is a movie that differs from the other nature documentary. The film is meditative. Music, the sounds of nature and the absence of a human voice allow the viewer to plunge into the beauty of wild nature as much as possible, to feel its presence among volcanoes, rivers and wild animals, and experience an important boundary, beyond which a person should not interfere.
