Sitka Film Maker Ellen Frankenstein is putting the finishing touches on a fascinating new film, Eating Alaska.
Eating Alaska is a serious and humorous film in progress about connecting to where you live and eating locally. It is about trying to break away from the industrial food system when that means not only buying fresh seasonal food from local farmers, but taking part in a world of hunting and gathering. Made by a former city dweller now living on an island in Alaska and married to fisherman and deer hunter, it is a journey into regional food traditions, our connection to the wilderness and to what we put into our mouths.
Stay tuned for details about a screening of this film in conjunction with the Juneau Sustainability Commission's Farmers Market and Food Festival on August 30, 2008 at the Juneau Arts and Culture Center.
