Video: Heart of Alaska

Filmmaker Bjorn Olson has launched a Kickstarter campaign to make a documentary about an adventurous family that walked and packrafted for three months in the Alaskan wilderness, covering 800 miles (1287 km) in the process. That in and of itself is pretty amazing, but the fact that they did it with two pre-school kids in two is simply incredible.

Below you’ll find a trailer for the documentary that Bjorn hopes to make. It gives you a bit of insight into the subjects of his film, and why he is so interested in telling their story. With about nine days to go on the fund raising campaign, he still has a few dollars to bring in so that he can wrap up the project. If this looks like something you’d like to see made, throw a few bucks his way to help him reach his goals.
