Being Caribou

A film documenting the experiences of a Canadian couple as they follow the Porcupine Caribou herd for five months on the journey to & from their breeding grounds in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge--the exact spot caught in controversy over drilling for oil. It's an incredibly moving film, with gorgeous scenery, & spurts of amusing irony provided by the Bush doll that the couple brings with them on their trek. And it is quite the trek: five months & roughly 930 miles. These two are truly hardcore & their documentary is definitely worth checking out. It has now won 17 awards at international film festivals!
We own a copy & anyone is welcome to borrow it (may be a week or so before it is available, as it is now being passed around Levi's work--just let us know!)
