Arctic Daughter: A Lifetime of Wilderness

Jean Aspen and Tom Irons

Festival - Local Sightings Film Festival 2018: Feature Films

At the age of 22, Jean Aspen headed into the Alaskan wilderness with her first husband, Phil, sojourning above the Arctic circle with the purpose of living solely off the land. They spent a year with almost no other human contact, rushing to build a shelter out of found materials before the darkest days of winter descended and subsisting off berries and rations of dried salted meat. As daring as it may seem, this was a path Jean was born into  as the daughter of author-adventurer Connie Helmericks, Jean spent her earliest years in the arctic wilderness with her parents. Thus, Jean followed her legacy by forging her own path.

Jean has continued to live in the remote arctic wilderness throughout her life, learning from her experiences and working to teach others through her books and films. Now in her 70s, Jean and her husband Tom are working to disassemble the structures they have built over the course of 26 years in arctic and return the materials to the land. This stark philosophical documentary takes us through Jeans lifelong dedication to living beyond the edges of settled land in order to examine the relationship that exists between humans and the natural world.
