Non-spoiler alert: The star of Werner Herzog’s Sundance award-winning documentary Grizzly Man is dead. The surprising part is that before he was killed, Timothy Treadwell spent 14 summers living among Alaskan grizzly bears — and he filmed himself constantly with a camcorder. The resulting footage, which wowed audiences in Park City, Utah, constitutes the backbone of director Herzog’s documentary. ”He was driven by demons and ecstasy,” says the legendary German director. ”There was some sort of secret wish in him for someone to show these scenes. It’s a film about the deepest turmoil of the human soul.”
