The Wild Canadian Year reveals remarkable wildlife behaviour and spectacular Canadian landscapes. Our journey begins on March 21st, the first day of spring all across Canada. Spring is a time of transformation for wood frog. We will see caribou takes on epic migration to reach calving grounds, while Canada’s smallest birds return from Mexico. The unique sea wolves are filmed, for the first time, hunting sea otters.
Every year hundreds of baby grizzlies are abandoned when their mothers are disturbed at their dens. The Pazhetnovs have been rescuing orphaned cubs for nearly three decades and have successfully returned over 200 of them back to the wild. Gordon Buchanan joins the Pazhetnovs, a pioneering family of biologists in snowy Russia as they attempt to rehab grizzly bear cub orphans.
The documentary tells the untold story of John Lennons iconic Imagine album. Its also a story about Yoko meeting John and East meeting West. Two artistic minds connecting and inspiring each other both personally and professionally, ultimately co-authoring a radical worldview. Director Michael Epstein gained access to the extensive Lennon video, audio and photo archive, including much previously unseen material, and the film features never before seen or heard footage such as the first demo of Imagine (discovered by their audio archivist in an unmarked eight-track box) as well as unheard audio interviews with John and film footage of the couple working together in the studio. The film also features new interviews with those closest to the couple during the period of creating the Imagine album.
