IAN MCALLISTER set out to explore Great Bear Rainforest, in Canada. His trip was supposed to last only a week. But he was drawn to the beautiful habitat. He spent three years directing an Imax movie about the place. Great Bear Rainforest hits theaters February 15.
The film puts viewers right in the action. It features close-up shots of the landscape and the creatures who live there. “It is such a magical place,” McAllister told TFK. “There is so much wildlife. The trees are so big. The bears are so big. The movie had to be put on the biggest screen of all.”
