Velga Vitola – the so called “Mother of bears” is a unique woman, pride of Latvia. She’s vibrant, fascinating, full of passion and love for animals.
Our paths crossed when we were filming a short clip about her for a TV programme a couple of years ago. We soon realised that Velga is awe inspiring and her story ought to be shared; for a long time we have been trying to figure out a way of how to bring her story to you as we hoped you’d enjoy ‘meeting’ her as much as we did.
With our production budget being $0.00 we couldn’t make a fully pledged documentary, although she most certainly deserves one.

    An amazing story, what an extraordinary woman. The clip could really do with some more English subtitles, however, because some important points were missed out (there should be enough time / space to do so successfully). Well done.


Director of Photography. All the music videos filmed by me were produced between 1987 and 1993. They were filmed on 35 mm film and no computer treatment had been used in any of them.
