Students in Tatitlek, Alaska were the first group to perform Sarah Hurst's "A Native Lad."
ATMI's Adam Rose-Levy editing together footage shot by Sarah Hurst as she observed this world premiere!
"Sarah Hurst's play about Alaska history is primarily for use in schools, and she hired a team of Alaskan artists to turn it into a graphic novel. She could do this with two grants from the Alaska Humanities Forum as part of the 50th anniversary of statehood celebrations. The play and graphic novel are titled “A Native Lad” and consist of 17 short scenes from different eras going from the Alaska Purchase through to statehood, the discovery of oil at Prudhoe Bay, the struggle for ANCSA and the rise to megastardom of the world’s most famous Alaskan." - Ignite Anchorage Web site.
