SLOVENIA, LAND OF THE BEAR
The secrets of a successful cohabitation
In Slovenia, on the edge of the last primary forests in Europe, man and bear coexist peacefully. This small country has become a model in this respect. The animal has even inspired rich and colorful folklore.
How did the Slovenians manage to live in harmony with the plantigrade? Breeders, researchers, and even artists show us the way in a country where nature and traditions are still very much intertwined.
Over the seasons, this film crosses the paths of bears and humans in a magnificent and incredibly well-preserved ecosystem.
