American Bear DVD
Is it still possible in 21st-century America to depend upon "the kindness of strangers"? Filmmakers Gregory Grano and Sarah Sellman set out on a 60-day, 30-state odyssey─with stops in the five U.S. cities named Bear─to see if people they'd never met would be willing to put them up for the night. The resulting road trip documentary offers an eye-opening and often touching look at the societal ties that unite us. 93 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
