Kamchatka Bears. Life Begins

In this virtually unnarrated documentary, we follow Eurasia’s largest bears who live in Eastern Russia, on the Kamchatka Peninsula. The bears are depicted in their natural environment as our majestic fellow animals, not as threats or means for financial gain. (Translation: Liina Härkönen)
