A world far away from other world on this planet…A world were very few privilege will be able to go….A very beautiful place on planet Earth…It is a world worth visiting while your stay on planet Earth.
“Whether or not we reach Alaska, we all want to know that such a place exists” - and it seems almost impossible that such a place does exist.
Humpback whales, Wolves, Salmon, Buffalo, Musk Ox, Bears, Sea lions, Caribou, Bald Eagles, Polar Bears, Moose and Man - just a few of the stars of ALASKA. The variety of life in Alaska is overwhelming - enough to provide material for a score of Big Movies (in fact, it has.) In ALASKA, director George Casey shows real grace whether depicting Humpback whales on a herring hunt or Natives on a whale hunt. The film conveys a consistent spirit of awe and curiosity. Thankfully, ALASKA is not a laundry list of spectacular animals - but a tribute to one of nature’s last purely wild landscapes.
Survival is the deceptively straightforward theme - strategies for braving Alaska’s extremes and reaping its riches link and distinguish all forms of life here. ALASKA sets the standard for Large Format nature documentaries - too many of which are episodic, derivative and thematically cobbled together. ALASKA’s science is broad, but its best lessons are not meant to be of the classroom variety - sheer exposure to raw and beautiful nature is the point.
