Nome Road System

Take a strange journey along the Nome Road System in Alaska. Powerfully evocative imagery. Stark ambient sounds. A strange, dreamlike world. With assured direction the filmmaker creates a hypnotic rhythm, constructs a poetic logic to the story and submerses us in an experimental doc that is both accessible and fascinating. The camera witnesses normal, prosaic activities: a man has a medical check-up; fish are skinned; a fun bathtub parade moves down main street and throughout: the recurring, ever-present Nome Road System. As an analysis of human activity within a landscape, the film brilliantly achie-ves a mute intensity. A small masterpiece.
