Backyard Bears of Transylvania

  • New
  • UHD

An ancient bear cult has survived, deep in the Transylvanian forests, where Europe’s greatest land predator is a symbol of rebirth. Modern Romania has not lost its fascination with bears that peaked under Ceausescu, with a breeding programme designed to satisfy the dictator’s hunting obsession. His regime is history, but the bears are still there - and with ever-increasing numbers, conflict is unavoidable. We follow a female bear and her three cubs as they move from the mountains into town.
