Heart of Alaska was entered into the Anchorage Film Festival and won best 'Made in Alaska' category. I am incredibly humbled and honored. So many talented people put a lot of energy, time, and expertise into this film. Thank you AIFF and everyone who has supported Heart of Alaska.
Hig, Erin and their two children walk out of their comfortable home on a cold March predawn morning and begin a four-month human powered expeditionaround Alaska's Cook Inlet. While carrying food, camping gear and other necessities for their survival, the family also carries a question – 'what do you think the future of Alaska will look like in 50 years?'
Beyond expansive mudflats, rivers, and streams and over headlands and miles of uninhabited beaches there exists a patchwork of communities. From small native villages to Alaska's largest city, Cook Inlet is the Heart of Alaska.
Through adventure, inquiry, chance encounters and in-depth conversations this film aims to pause long enough to ponder what the future of Alaska will look like for the two adventuring toddlers in this film and their peers.
