The Andean Bear normally feeds on bromelaid in the woods of the

Andes. Yet now the vegetarian bear is illegally being hunted after

supposedly attacking lifestock.

Director: Bernhard Rübe

born 1970, founded ruebefilm in 2001. Before that, he studied biology and gained varied film experience, among others with the renowned underwater filmmaker Walter Sigl, who gave him an understanding of the basics of being a freelance producer: "You have to know how to do everything". We're still working on it.
Our top priorities are the use of excellent cameras, interesting narrative elements and submerging into the waters and exciting corners of the earth.
