pre movie Barrow

1. my sound cart in the hotel room
2. David Fleming buying coffee at our new favorite coffee shop. This is the only game in town.
3. Me (James) in front of a whaling boat. Whaling season starts today, april 7, and is done in these boats that are caribou skin stretched over a wooden frame.
4. The Barrow graveyard is simple. The Inupiak people that inhabit Barrow are are warm and welcoming, but not flashy in life or death.

  1. A hotel and coffee shack huh? More civilized than I would have thought. Wondering about the graveyard... everyone must get buried during the small window when the ground isn't frozen. When and how long would that window be?
