A documentary film about the everyday lives of bears in the Siberian wild by filmmaker Igor Shpilenok, is in the making. The beautiful images of the bears, and their cubs, are depicted in many touching images that have been supplied in advance of the forthcoming 90 minute documentary.
As many as seven bear families are being followed, filmed and studied. Igor thinks the production will be completed around 2017, and the crew is taking their time because they feel that films made in shorter time intervals do not depict a true natural setting for the bears. Russia has about 110,000 brown bears.
This bear and her cub are not related to the story, but they are cute!
