Special Showing of Epic Film Classic, “Spirit of the Wind”

The Fairbanks Alaska Public Lands Information Center is pleased to present the most celebrated motion picture of Fairbanks, “Spirit of the Wind” Saturday, January 14th at 2:00 P.M., in the Morris Thompson Cultural & Visitors Center theatre.

This classic film portrays interior Alaska and the life and adventures of legendary sprint musher, George Attla, the “Huslia Hustler”.

“Spirit of the Wind” is an epic film that follows the early trails of sprint mushing legend, George Attla, who overcomes great odds and difficult hardships to win the classic 1958 Fur Rendezvous Sled Dog Championship. Filmed almost entirely on location in Fairbanks and the outlying communities of Fort Yukon, Rampart and Stevens Village, “Spirit of the Wind” portrays the realistic images of village life in the 1950’s and celebrates the challenges and excitement of Alaska sled dog racing at it’s best!

For more information, please call the Fairbanks APLIC at 459-3730.

The Alaska Public Lands Information Center is located within the Morris Thompson Cultural & Visitors Center at 101 Dunkel Street.
