American Bear: An Adventure in the Kindness of Strangers


“American Bear” captures the adventures of Sarah Sellman and Greg Grano, who embark on a 60 day, 30 state trip around the United States, critically examining American culture, compassion and fear, by relying on the kindness of strangers for a bed in a different town each night. This 10 minute excerpt follows three days of the journey in South Dakota and Montana, featuring two of their hosts: a charismatic dinosaur bone collector and the granddaughter of the last warrior woman of her Cheyenne tribe. This sequence concludes with a critical conversation between Sarah and Greg as they debate the ethics of their project — are they giving back in light of receiving so much?
