Missoula, MT – Montana’s newest movie stars make their debut today – they’re a mother grizzly bear with two cubs and a young male bear, all living in Yellowstone National Park. The documentary "Grizzly" follows the bears as they overcome obstacles in nature, and some man-made challenges.

Film producer John Shier was impressed as he filmed the animals hunting, playing, cuddling with their cubs, fighting with wolves, and avoiding humans.

"They’re really intelligent animals. They’ve got to find a lot of different foods, and a lot of those foods are only available for a short period of time. So, they really memorize the landscape."

The film documents wildlife sequences that have never been recorded before, according to Shier, such as a grizzly chasing down a bull elk, and another one juggling old bones and playing in a lake.

"My hope is that, seeing this side of bears maybe people haven’t seen before, they’ll be more willing to accept bears."

Shier calls the movie the most comprehensive portrayal of Yellowstone grizzlies to date, and it includes perspectives from ranchers, politicians, researchers and homeowners living in areas surrounding the park. The Sierra Club funded the documentary, which is narrated by Susan Sarandon, and is showing tonight at the Roxy Theater, 7:00 p.m., 718 S. Higgins Ave. in Missoula. Another screening is scheduled for March 12, 7:00 p.m., at the Crawford Theater in Bozeman.
