Description:

Southern Circuit is the nation’s first regional tour of independent filmmakers, providing communities with an interactive way of experiencing independent film.

See the indie film, Smokin' Fish  at the Morris Museum of Art. After viewing the movie, enjoy a question-and-answer session with filmmaker Luke Griswold-Tergis.

In the documentary Smokin ' Fish , Cory Mann is a quirky Tlingit businessman hustling to make a dollar in Juneau, Alaska. He gets hungry for smoked salmon, nostalgic for his childhood, and decides to spend a summer smoking fish at his family’s traditional fish camp. The unusual story of his life and the untold history of his people interweave with the process of preparing traditional food as he struggles to pay his bills, keep the IRS off his back, and keep his business afloat.  Through circumstances tragic, bizarre, and just plain ridiculous, Smokin’ Fish  tells the story of one man’s attempts to navigate the messy zone of collision between the modern world and an ancient culture.
