My Neighbour Is a Bear

Student Finalist

A rare Marsican bear family wanders down from the Italian Apennines to the charming village of Villalago, in search of food in the local orchards. For most people this would be a cause for concern, but for the residents of Villalago it is a rather different situation. The film tells the story of the determination of one woman to understand these bears and gives an important lesson of the fragility of our connection with nature.
