Yukon filmmakers Fritz Mueller and Teresa Earle set out for Yellowknife to discover what fuels this passionate cultural obsession. In English and Japanese, w/ English Subtitles Kid-friendly

Screens with: Stories For the Arctic Refuge Dir. Krista Davis, 2019 | Yukon | 15 MIN | DOC Follows a group who are hiking through Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in hopes of meeting the Porcupine Caribou Herd.
