The documentary, Great Bear Rainforest, is now available in IMAX and other Giant Screen Theaters!
Great Bear Rainforest is a stunningly beautiful, inspiring and educational journey through one of the planet’s last remaining wildernesses—Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest. Home to the rarest bear on earth—the fabled all-white Spirit Bear—the Great Bear Rainforest is the world’s largest remaining coastal temperate rainforest, a pristine stretch of wilderness that runs along the western coast of British Columbia. Shot exclusively for IMAX and giant screen theatres, Great Bear Rainforest takes audiences into the world of the Spirit Bear and its ancient rainforest home—a land of wolves, grizzly bears, humpback whales, seals, sea lions and sea birds that feast each spring on the vast schools of herring that spawn in the coastal waters. Directed by Ian McAllister, who has spent 30 years working and living in the Great Bear Rainforest, the film will introduce audiences to this magical and little-known environment, which has remained unchanged for 10,000 years.
Filmmaker Ian McAllister has lived and worked in this majestic rainforest for 30 years as he is passionate about the preservation of this globally significant environment–the world’s largest intact temperate rainforest. To make this film, he had to overcome a number of challenges, such as harsh weather, unpredictable wildlife and the inconvenience of working in such a remote location far removed from modern life.
My oldest daughter, whom I call Big Sis, is 10 years old and together we watched this movie last weekend at the Orlando Science Center and we really enjoyed it! Big Sis is really into documentaries right now so I knew it would be a treat for us both to see it on a big screen together. It is 45 minutes of memorizing footage that reminds us all how small we are and how important it is we take care of animals and nature so that they are not lost forever. Great Bear Rainforest will bring you as close as you can get to this magical environment, where you’ll discover what it means to be truly wild.
