Event Description

Family and culture combine to poignant and frequently hilarious effect as Tlingit businessman Cory Mann finds his way from selling underpants in China to smoking fish at his family’s traditional fish camp. Against the stunning backdrop of Alaska, Cory rediscovers his cultural roots, dodging grizzly bears, fishing with his adorable nephew, and crashing his canoe into tree branches occasionally. At fish camp, time moves differently, as Cory explains: “All the world is alive… the past, present, and future are all the same.” It’s a sentiment echoed by his Aunt Sally, who says, “Sure, it’s good to have television and computers and the like. But... your television, you can’t eat it and neither can you eat your computer. There’s nothing delicious about it!” The woman has a point. The smoked salmon that Cory makes is entirely another matter. This is warmth, love, and family in flaming red fish form—food for the soul, in other words.
