• Redpath Docs – “Grizzly Man”

    ON JAN. 29 –  GRIZZLY MAN (2005).  ‘Bear whisperer’ Timothy Treadwell’s life was a tangle of passionate environmental activism, idealistic half-truths and outright lies. And with his shocking death in October 2003, it all began to unravel. What few knew about Treadwell was that much of his life was an invention. Timothy Treadwell, the avowed bear man of the Alaska wilderness, lived poor and little known for most of his 46 years despite a desire for the spotlight of celebrity. He claimed to have led a life of drugs, brawls and booze until, in the late 1980s, he found his way to the grizzlies, most recently in Katmai National Park and Preserve on the Alaska Peninsula about 300 miles southwest of Anchorage. His cause: to save them from hunters and poachers who apparently didn’t exist.
