Funded by NFB, Canada’s public producer and distributor, Jeremy Mendes and Leanne Allison directed Bear 71, an app-enabled interactive documentary and installation in Utah. The work presents a powerful story from the perspective of a female grizzly bear who comments on the Banff National Park rangers tracking her to reveal insights on the relationship of wildlife to the digital world. The emotional narrative provides insight on the conditions of wildlife in the age of networks, information exchange, and digital surveillance and more importantly draws a striking parallel between how the web tracks people to gather information and how animals are surveilled to provide security.
