Arctic Daughter
Directed by Jean Aspen & Tom Irons
Run Time: 1h27m
Made in Alaska

Arctic Daughter: A Lifetime of Wilderness is a 90-minute documentary written and recorded, directed and produced by author Jean Aspen and her husband, Tom Irons. Recorded at their log cabin in the remote Brooks Range of Alaska, this retrospective piece carries the viewer from Aspen’s childhood in an arctic log cabin, through her precarious youthful wanderings, and across six wild decades. Using historic footage, vivid photographs, high-definition video, and original music, Jeanie shares her amazing life beyond civilization and conveys her love affair with wilderness and family. The couple’s work speaks to the authentic human journey and to our belonging in the greater community of life.  

Edited by Brian George Smith (Puffin Bay, The Care and Feeding of Jack). From Anchorage to L.A. and back Brian has worked in the movie industry his entire adult life. Brian’s sensitivity to sound, timing, music, and story line has made this documentary come to life on the big screen. 
Second in a planned trilogy of documentaries by Aspen, Irons, and Smith Arctic Daughter: A Lifetime of Wilderness is deeply honest while carrying a message for everyone who loves and cherishes wild places. Their first, Arctic Son: Fulfilling the Dream, depicting their young family establishing a foothold alone in the arctic, aired on PBS stations across the nation. Currently, the two elders are recording Rewilding Kernwood, as they release and deconstruct all that they have built, restoring the land to nature. Their message is universal, as is their intended audience.  }
