Following the recent passing of Troy Hurtubise, the eccentric inventor made famous in Project Grizzly, we revisit the NFB classic that gained cult status with praise from director Quentin Tarantino, a loving parody on The Simpsons and millions of Youtube views. After creating what he hopes is a grizzly-proof robo suit, Hurtubise ventures into Alberta’s Rocky Mountains on a quixotic quest to face Canada’s deadliest land mammal, testing his armour—and courage— along the way. Join us in remembering a true Canadian original who continues to inspire us to follow our wildest dreams.

Join us for a post-screening discussion on the legacy of Project Grizzly with director Peter Lynch.
