The South Kamchatka Federal Sanctuary is often called bear paradise. A production team of LESFILM headed there to film a documentary about the real lives of brown bear families. They spent seven months observing and unveiling secrets on newborn bear cubs’ daily life. The score, the sounds of nature and the absence of human voices allow the viewer to plunge into the beauty of wild nature, to meditate amongst volcanoes, rivers and animals, and simultaneously experience an important boundary, beyond which mankind should not interfere.
