Project Grizzly is up at NFB!
I can’t remember where I first saw this crazy thing. Afterwards, when people started talking about Herzog’s Grizzly Man, it took me a while to sort out that they meant a different movie. “Wait, in the grizzly man documentary you’re talking about, he doesn’t don homemade battle armour and search out bears for combat?”
Peter Lynch, 1996, 72 min
In this feature-length documentary, Troy James Hurtubise goes face to face with Canada’s most deadly land mammal, the grizzly bear. Troy is the creator of what he hopes is a grizzly-proof suit, and he repeatedly tests his armour – and courage – in stunts that are both hair-raising and hilarious. Directed by Peter Lynch, the film has become a cult classic in the United States and is rumoured to be a favourite of director Quentin Tarantino.”
