Austin-based filmmaker Ben Hamilton has a knack for capturing the appeal of visiting — and living in — Southeast Alaska. The films he’s made for the Sitka Convention and Visitor’s Bureau are stunning to be sure, but often contain small, subtle portraits — of us. He made this short film for the Sitka Conservation Society. His next project: A feature-length documentary commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the 1964 Wilderness Act.
