1/30/2005 (updated 7/27/2011)

World Premiere, January 24th, 2005, Park City, Utah

Grizzly Man

Director: Werner Herzog
Composer: Richard Thompson

A devastating and heart-wrenching take on grizzly bear activists
Timothy Treadwell and Amie Huguenard, who were killed
in October of 2003 while living among grizzlies in Alaska.

Critics opine:
"mention has to be made of the score, composed by songwriter Richard Thompson. Thompson effortlessly captures the mood of the lonely surroundings, contributing greatly to the effectiveness of the film." Film threat

"On the tech side, cameraman Peter Zeitlinger's beautiful Alaskan landscapes are well accompanied by guitarist Richard Thompson's lyrical original score." Variety

"Richard Thompson's guitar-flavored score is a beaut." Hollywood Reporter

"In the documentary competition, the frontrunner seems to be "Grizzly Man." LA Times

The current plan for the theatrical release of Grizzly Man is August 2005.
LIONS GATE FILMS will be distributing the film.

Scoring sessions were also filmed in their entirety
for a probable DVD supplement, or stand alone documentary.

Soundtrack CD will be released on Cooking Vinyl in October 2005.
