Challenge Yourself

In 1989 filmmaker Michael Green lived for eight weeks with 45 Alaska Native high school students in a residential college bridge program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks know as the Rural Alaska Honors Institute. Native students tell their stories of struggles with loneliness, overcoming academic obstacles, and living in the urban environment of Alaska's second largest city. The film contrasts life at fish camp on the Yukon River with life at Alaska's flagship university.

Produced in cooperation with KUAC/Fairbanks, the program received common carriage in the state's urban areas and over the 200 village receivers of the Alaska public television service.
