Where the Summit Meets the Stars
Written and Directed by Frank Henry Kaash Katasse

Where the Summit Meets the Stars is an ethereal Alaska Native story driven by music, dance, and the culture of the Tlingit people. When a near-death experience derails her flight through Southeast Alaska, Rose awakens to find herself in the care of the kind man who pulled her to safety. But who is this mysterious stranger? And how is it possible that she survived? As they journey by boat through the darkness and fog, Rose untangles the mysteries of her past, questions the world around her, and comes to an inescapable crossroads.

In-person screening of the recorded VOD performance November 4, 5, and 6 at the UAA Fine Arts Building Recital Hall.

Video-On-Demand available online through November 20.
