The Long view
The Long View is an in-progress documentary film that looks to the experiences of remote Alaskan communities near Izembek National Wildlife Refuge between the Bering Sea and the Gulf of Alaska. This landscape of Izembek is vast and mountainous, edged by highly productive waters that have been designated of global importance in their impact on waterfowl and fish species. That said, the park land, like much of the Alaska Peninsula, has a complicated history. This project explores the challenges and political tensions negotiated by Alaska Native communities, lawmakers thousands of miles away in Washington, D.C., and the US Fish & Wildlife managers of the refuge.
