Bears of the Karawank Mountains

Auf den Spuren der Karawanken-Bären

For Slovenia's brown bears the fall of the Iron Curtain freed them to explore. Moving west through gentle Mediterranean countryside they encountered two obstacles: the Karawank Mountains and the Julian Alps. This film tells what happens when inquisitive and intelligent bears cross the biggest natural barriers in search of a new life: fishing, hunting, raiding ants' nests, scooping up berries, even stealing honey as they go. The bears remember exactly where they have been in previous years; they revisit or avoid old haunts, always moving closer to human civilization. The film sees the stark mountain landscapes and their flora and fauna (wolves and lynx are here too) through the eyes of the bears. Golden eagles, griffon vultures, bats and butterflies, ibex and chamois, red deer and marmots are some of the animals they encounter on the way.
