American Bear captures Americans yearning for face-to-face connections and navigating the risks inherent in sharing their stories with strangers. Each character’ s voice tells a unique story: from the daughter of the last warrior woman of the Cheyenne mountain tribe whose grandson still faces bigotry in Montana; to the single mother in Oklahoma rebuilding a relationship with her mother after a history of drug abuse; to young friends in Chicago finding new ways to articulate what modern segregation looks like; each character is facing obstacles that share a unique side of the multifaceted post-9/11 American identity. At times funny, heartbreaking, and inspirational, these individual stories reflect the daily choices we make to trust, to confide, to care for, and to sympathize. How do we develop relationships and navigate the barriers in society and in ourselves to actually form connections? While American Bear and its characters suggest some answers, the film offers many more questions, encouraging the viewer to take their own journey of reflection and discovery.
