One of my very favorite.

Comments about PBS Smokin Fish DVD:

I first saw this documentary on PBS years ago. It is one of those things that just stuck in my mind over time. Cory Mann is intelligent, charming, honest to a fault, disarming, so very human, (with all the facets that entails). He makes fun of himself and society. He lives on the edge and does "NOT" "stay between the lines" of mainstream society. He pursues the activities of his ancestors while just barely staying within modern society. He closes the doors on his small business to catch and smoke fish and drives an old car that belches out blue smoke. I love this documentary.

        Fabulous truths about culture shift, values, family, making a living making art, employment in Juneau, and being flexible enough to take all the risks it demands. I watch this over and over. I can't get enough! Great job everyone!
