dc.description.abstractNature Documentary films routinely center around the behaviors of animals, rarely focusing on cultural interspecies interactions with humans. Using 'Grizzly Man', 'Blackfish', 'Forty Ton Mirror', and 'The Lost Tapes of Dian Fossey', this paper explores the cultural collision of people, their expectations, and animals in both captivity and the wild. The approach each film takes will be examined and highlight the details used to reach their conclusions. With one exception, the underlying them[e] concludes that such interactions result in a detrimental outcome to both humans and animals.en
