Synopsis: In his mesmerizing new film, acclaimed director Werner Herzog explores the life and death of amateur grizzly bear expert and wildlife preservationist Timothy Treadwell. (Lions Gate Films)

Dr. David Cornelison (MSU, Physics) will talk about the gap between how scientists see the natural world versus the general public.

"A mesmerizing portrait of a man who staged a 13-year dance with death."
- Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"[Treadwell] left behind 100 hours of some of the most astonishing nature footage ever captured by camera."
- Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Herzog is still the only person who could have made Grizzly Man. His admiration for Treadwell has its limits, but he understands, better than most directors, what it means to follow dreams into the belly of the beast."
- Keith Phipps, AV Club
"Grizzly Man is a haunting and fascinating portrait of so much that is worth exploring: the implacability of nature, the hubris of human endeavor and the line between supreme dedication and madness."
- Claudia Puig, USA Today
