Jury Award Twin Rivers Film Festival 2006
Deadly Passion: Tragedy in Katmai investigates the fatal bear maulings of bear activist Timothy Treadwell and his companion Annie Huguenard that occurred in October 2003 in Katmai National Park, Alaska. This story unfolded in newspapers and magazines across the globe, reporting Treadwell’s passion for bears, delving into details of Treadwell’s life and outlining the personal cause that ultimately led to his death. However, the details of the story are a source of ongoing controversy and spans issues of bear-human relations that are far greater than the incident itself. DEADLY PASSION examines this tragic event within this context.
