Urban Gatherers: Winter Subsistence Hunting and Fishing
Some friends and I began fly fishing for trout and bowhunting for birds in Southcentral Alaska this winter. This was the first time they have done something like this in the winter, and they decided to make a film about it.
They traveled around Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula in search of their game, and also interviewed family members and long-time bowhunter Matt Jones.
This film is about subsistence and the power of just being outdoors.
