Far OUT: HEIMO'S ARCTIC REFUGE

VICE, 53min (2010) / over 6 million YouTube views

For the pilot episode of Far Out, I directed, filmed and edited a poignant story of Heimo and Edna Korth, who have come to be known as the “Last Alaskans”. Heimo and Edna have lived an isolated life in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for 30 years, raising a family and making a living trapping and hunting.

“A glimpse into a life reduced to the simplicity of hunting, eating, staying warm and dry, and on special occasions watching Predator on a generator-powered TV… it serves as a reminder how far we’ve come from our roots as hunters and gatherers.” - Adventure-Journal.com
