Listen to your ancestors. Listen to tales from an age gone by - a long, long time ago as the legend goes there was a time when animals could talk - when they behaved like us there was a time when even the plants and the stones had a voice - a time when plants and animals were our brothers and sisters. There was a time when we worshiped the bear ... a creature that has always lived side by side with us. The film â€œMaster of the Forestâ€ is a film about the long-lived relationship between man and brown bears in Scandinavia. It is a film about traditions and worshiping the bear among the Sami people. It is also a film about the fear we have towards this big creature ... and the fact that an encounter with him often has been a question about live or let die.
