Bear 71 is an interactive documentary produced by the National Film Board (NFB) of Canada. Originally built in Flash, Bear 71 was released in 2011 to critical acclaim. The backbone of the experience is a 23 minute track of audio and video, highlighting the relationship between humans, nature, technology, and one particular brown bear. The viewer is a voyeur in a world of information represented as an abstract grid of symbols. Surprisingly, this doesn’t hamper the emotional story within, and it should be experienced first-hand to be understood.
