Ice Fishing in a Climate Crisis that Precedes a Global Pandemic

Ice Fishing in a Climate Crisis that Precedes a Global Pandemic

00:08:35

Does an ice fishing expedition really count if there isn't any safe ice to stand on, or is it more about drinking beer with your buddies in a cold cabin in the woods? A look back at a yearly tradition gone awry with the hindsight of living through a global pandemic.

KOA TALKING TO ME by the National Park Service, follows a Hawaiian man's love for one of the rarest and most threatened trees in the world. Junior's connection with koa trees on his native island compels him to conserve and honour the spirt of fallen trees that would normally be wasted. His way of using the trees connects him to one of the oldest Hawaiian traditions.

The Race to Alaska

The Race to Alaska

01:38:04

The Race to Alaska is an adrenaline-fueled, 750-mile boat race through the dangerous and spectacular wilderness of the Inside Passage to Alaska.

Described as “the Iditarod, on a boat, with a chance of drowning or being eaten by a grizzly bear,” it’s amazing anyone enters at all. There are no motors and no support – and nobody finishes without a story.

We follow the visceral experience of racers as they compete in one of the most difficult endurance challenges in the world. This race pushes people to find new depths, and discover new layers of themselves. The film is a raw and often times hilarious account of pulling through, again and again – a window into what collective stamina looks like.
