Grizzly Country, directed by Ben Moon and presented by Peak Design, spotlights the life of Doug Peacock, a Vietnam War veteran, author, and eco-warrior. He spent years alone in Wyoming and Montana observing grizzly bears and reconciling humans' fear of them. His story and tireless quest to protect the North American grizzly gear is a reminder that even things we fear deserve a voice, otherwise we risk losing them forever.

The film debuted as an official 2019 Banff Mountain Film Selection as well as a selection for the 2019 Wild & Scenic Film Festival.
