In the midst of the Great Depression, Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal gave 202 destitute Midwestern farm families a fresh start in Alaska, then just a U.S. territory. ALASKA FAR AWAY tells the absorbing story of the unusual and controversial government experiment known as The Matanuska Colonization Project of 1935 and of the unsuspecting families thrust into the national spotlight. Narrated by actor Peter Coyote and featuring archival footage and interviews with many surviving colonists, ALASKA FAR AWAY recreates the hardships, dangers and excitement of leaving everything behind to settle a new land.
