A four-year-old, 135-kilo female grizzly bear is your tour guide through Alberta’s Banff National Park in Bear 71, a VR documentary experience created by Leanne Allison and Jeremy Mendes at the National Film Board of Canada (NFB). Photographed by a series of motion-activated trail cameras, the short video segments chronicle the tagged Bear 71’s capture and release back into Banff. An interactive map allows users to make their way through the park and access the shocking amount of footage available. The result is at once quirky, poetic, and haunting.

“There aren’t a lot of ways for a grizzly bear to die. At least that’s the way it was in the wild.”

This ominous line is our first step into Bear 71. As we follow the bear’s movements, this vague threat is always on our mind. How will Bear 71 die? How might we be to blame?
