The Sheldon Jackson Museum invites the public to a free film screening on Saturday, April 21st at 2pm. The museum will show Smokin’ Fish in the museum gallery.
In the film Smokin’ Fish, Cory Mann is a businessman hustling to make a dollar in Juneau, Alaska. He gets hungry for smoked salmon — a favorite food from his childhood — and decides to spend a summer preparing the traditional dish of his people, the Tlingit. Smokin' Fish interweaves the unusual story of Mann's life and the untold history of the Tlingit with the process of preparing this traditional food. The documentary also chronicles Mann's struggles to pay his bills and keep his business, which focuses on mass producing and importing Tlingit artwork and wholesaling it to the tourism industry, afloat. This film screening is free and open to the public and sponsored by the Friends of Sheldon Jackson Museum.
The Sheldon Jackson Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to noon and 1pm to 4:00pm with a lunch closure between noon and 1pm. During the winter, admission is $5 for general visitors, $4 for seniors, and free for ages 18 and under. However, admission will be waived for the film screening. The film may not be appropriate for youth due to language and graphic violence. Please call (907) 747-8981 with any questions about the museum’s programming.
