The Gentle Bear Man of Emo - DVD
A divine story unlike any other!
By 
I was grateful to receive an advanced copy of this film! It's a captivating story about a man's restoration of hope in the human spirit through a profound connection with bears and other wildlife. Michael Scheibler tells his own life journey of traumatic loss, abuse, rage and ultimately hopelessness in humanity. In a moment of deep anger he cries out "Why is there no love? Where is it?" The answer to Mr. Scheibler's painful cry blossoms through a miraculous and continuous love story that takes place each day in Scheibler's Isaiah XI Wildlife Refuge. Every bear, raccoon, and bird that finds its way to Mr. Scheibler has its own story, paralleling pain and brokenness; Isaiah XI is an intersection where darkness meets freedom and healing for both animal and man. What takes place here can only be attributed to unconditional and divine love.

This is a heart wrenching and spirit lifting documentary of an incredible journey of a man and his bears. For my husband and me, we were deeply moved.

A Welcome Change!
By 
I was invited to an advanced premier and I was expecting a reality television themed nature documentary that we've all seen over and over again, but I was overwhelmed with the heart, humanity, and somewhat scary proximity of very large bears I was presented with! Not only is the story a welcome change from the bland cardboard cut-out recipe we're all a little tired of, it's a REAL story about a REAL person who interacts with the world around him in an unbelievable way.

The music is beautiful, the story is touching, and I loved it!

Two Stories
By 
I started this video thinking it was a story about a man who gets too close to bears and lives to tell about it. That much is true, but it goes beyond that and tells a bigger story of a man who finds wholeness where many would have given up. His life is pretty amazing. There are segments that go a bit too long, but the story, cinematography and music more than make up for it. Another purposeful and well done production from Steve Greisen.
 

You are about to experience something rare…

Something controversial…

Something dangerous.

In northwestern Ontario, lies the little town of Emo. Michael Scheibler and his wife, Betty, bought 320 acres of land here.

Little did they know there was something unusual about this place. Animals started appearing, finding sanctuary here. Deer, raccoons, a wolf and then…out of the wild they came. Bears!

Soon, Michael and the bears would develop a mutual trust in each other and he began to do the remarkable….maybe unthinkable. He began to feed the bears…by hand.

But this story is not what you expect...

Bruised by tragedy Michael's soul would plunged into a darkness that stole his humanity and clawed away at this dreams. But through this unexpected encounter with the bears, Michael would see a light that would lead him on a path to love and redemption.

Experience a rare film that will take you on a unpredictable journey…and a surprise encounter with the power of redemption.

A heart-warming story of how wild animals taught one broken man to be human…again.
