Bear vs Man: The Endless Conflict| 56mins
Director: Ece Soydam | Producer: Ece Soydam
Focus Years: 2010 | Country: Turkey
The overlapping habitats of bears and humans in Turkey are creating more and more conflict between the two species. Bears harm peopleâ€™s orchards, farms and beehives, all of which are of great importance to the low-income local people. But what can the bears do when their natural food sources are destroyed? The problem is no joke, but the stories from the Black Sea region are colourful and humorous. The documentary aims to reveal these stories from the point of view of both bears and people, to introduce the species and to show the efforts of conservationists to find solutions.
