4 weeks ago I was part of a film crew who went far into the Alaskan wilderness to document a small group of village kids before they embarked on a first time field trip to the lower 48 states.The inspiration was their school teacher who was looking for ways to motivate her students to strive academically, and connect with the world outside their 40 person village living a subsistence lifestyle.
They had low comprehension test scores and needed to travel and experience other things. We also followed them throughout Santa Barbara and by the end of their two week trip to California, all of the kids became much more expressive and had many to things to say. The experience will be turned in to a 30 minute TV special and later into a film festival documentary. For more details, here’s the blog: http://akdreamsfar.blogspot.com/
