Description

Three Gemini Awards nominations and a Spectrum Kodak Prize

The trio Benoit collaborates with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to produce the well-known documentary titled In the Company of Moose , first broadcast on David Suzuki’s The Nature of Things in January 1993. This program documents wildlife painter Gisèle Benoit’s remarkable observations of the behaviour of moose in the wild and her unprecedented attemps to communicate with them. A sensitive and touching record of her encounters with the largest member of the deer family in the world, Gisèle Benoit’s documentary is the culmination of 12 years spent filming throughout the spectacular Gaspesian countryside of Québec.

As a bonus feature, this box set includes a documentary in two parts, entitled  The Spirit of the Moose. The first part is based on Gisèle’s diary throughout one year of observation and the second part reveals the making of In the Company of Moose, as well as the long love story of the Benoit family for the moose.

Written by Gisèle Benoit and Denis Blaquière

Director of photography: Raynald Benoit

Narrator: Dr. David Suzuki, scientist and environmentalist
