We are thrilled to announce the completion of the documentary film "We Breathe Again"
Check out our official new short trailer
On September 26th We Breathe Again will be televised nation-wide on the PBS program America ReFramed.
In a landscape as dramatic as its stories, We Breathe Again intimately explores the lives of our Alaska Native people, each confronting the impacts of historic trauma and suicide. Reflected in the northern lights and the city streetlights, from the ice roads to the asphalt, the characters battle for personal healing, hoping to break new trail for their families and their communities to follow.
Produced by Native Movement, Crawl Walk Run, & the University of Alaska Fairbanks, We Breathe Again will screen in a number of locations throughout Alaska. Nome: June 15th Kotzebue: TBA Anchorage: June 26th & 27th Bethel: TBA Juneau: TBA Dillingham: TBA
