Vivre comme les caribous


Ce long métrage documentaire relate la longue marche de l'écologiste Leanne Allison et du biologiste Karsten Heuer, qui ont suivi à la trace 120 000 caribous, pendant 5 mois sur une distance de 1500 kilomètres à travers le Yukon et l’Alaska. Récit d’une expérience éprouvante et appel à une prise de conscience de la fragilité d’un milieu naturel menacé par l’exploitation pétrolière et gazière.
