"The Ends of the Earth: Alaska's Wild Peninsula" comes to Anchorage and Homer

Running Bear Roy Woods - NPS

This May, Alaska Geographic and Katmai National Park and Presrve are proud to present John Grabowska's new film The Ends of the Earth, a new documentary about the amazing wildlife and wild lands of the Alaska Peninsula. We'll be having two events - one in Anchorage and one in Homer. See below for event details! 

More about the movie... In the cloud-cloaked landscape that is the Alaska Peninsula, bears outnumber people and the sockeye salmon run is the largest in the world. At its heart is Katmai, an exotic land of towering volcanoes and the greatest concentration of brown bears on Earth.

The film captures the essence of Alaska - both its wildness and its historic past. An exciting highlight is rare 100 year-old footage of the aftermath of the largest volcanic eruption of the 20th century which buried villages and altered landscapes for generations. Also featured is Aniakchak National Monument and Preserve, one of the least-visited and most mysterious parks in the National Park System.

The filmmaker and staff of Katmai and Aniakchak parks will discuss the making of the film and bear biology after all the shows, so stick around!
