Emmett Williams talks about an ongoing film project with Mt. Edgecumbe High School. For the past year, Williams and former Island Institute fellow Annika Ord have been teaching a class called “Our Alaskan Stories.” They taught students documentary techniques and sent them home with video cameras over the summer. The five students are now creating short documentaries about culture, place, and climate change. They will screen their documentaries on Thursday, November 10 at the Sitka Coliseum Theater. The screening begins at 6 p.m. and is followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
