Directed by Leanne Allison & Diana Wilson - 2004
In this feature-length documentary, husband and wife team Karsten
Heuer (wildlife biologist) and Leanne Allison (environmentalist) follow a
herd of 120,000 caribou on foot across 1500 km of Arctic tundra. In
following the herd's migration, the couple hopes to raise awareness of
the threats to the caribou's survival. Along the way they brave Arctic
weather, icy rivers, hordes of mosquitoes and a very hungry grizzly bear.
Dramatic footage and video diaries combine to provide an intimate
perspective of an epic expedition.
Produced by the National Film Board of Canada (NFB).
