The state of Alaska is currently considering a 220-mile industrial access road to facilitate construction of a huge open pit copper mine in the roadless and remote Brooks Range. In response, our team of filmmakers completed a 350-mile expedition along the proposed route corridor to capture the wild nature and human culture that could be lost if the rivers are bridged and the tundra is paved.
