Nineteen young people, on an island cut off from the grid; must transform a huge cedar log into a graceful Tlingit sea-going dugout canoe; of an ancient design; with ancient methods: adzes, rocks and steam. In the process they will build a model community, unite the support of a larger community; and ultimately transform themselves. This documentary by prolific Whitehorse-based director Allan Code was made in collaboration with the Northern Cultural Expressions Society, which operates a youth-focused carving program and studio based on Northwest Coast and Athabaskan traditions. Appropriate for general audiences.
