    Greetings! Want to throw another film possibility at you, made just across the border, which gets folks talking about local foods, ethics and conservation too.

    Eating Alaska is a documentary about a vegetarian, who moves to Alaska, marries a fisherman and hunter starts to wonder what is the “right thing” to eat. In a wry enlightening quest for a sustainable, healthy and ethical meal, women try to teach her to hunt, teens gather traditional foods, vegans give cooking lessons, an organic farmer shares his story of growing on the last frontier, she fishes for wild salmon, scrutinizes food labels with kids and finds toxic chemicals getting into wild foods. With humor and compassion, Eating Alaska shows natives and non-natives trying to balance buying industrial processed foods with growing their own and living off the land in the 21st century. Made by a former urban vegetarian now living on an island in Alaska, it is a journey into regional food traditions, our connection to where we live and what we put into our mouths.
