Documentary film screening - Alaska: Big America.

Saturday, October 11 -- 2 PM

Join us for a screening of the documentary film Alaska: Big America.

Alaska, it’s the land itself – its vast distances, the extreme weather, the imposing landscapes – that has shaped history and shaped the lives of all those who come under its spell. People have been lured by riches beyond their wildest dreams – fur, fish, gold, oil. Many have come to find a new life and to make their mark. Others come to lose themselves in a wild land more vast and unforgiving than they could ever imagine. They’ve come to measure themselves against its challenges. In return, they’ve endured bitter temperatures, isolation, and harrowing adventures for the privilege of living there.
