Anchorage — A documentary titled, “ICEBOUND” will be released this week. The 100 minute movie is about the true story of the 1925 “Serum Run,” in which 34 men and their dog sled teams rushed anti-toxin across the frozen landscape to save the children of Nome, Alaska from a diphtheria outbreak. The documentary will premier at the Anchorage International Film Festival today at the Bear’s Tooth Theater. The documentary will be shown two more times during the film festival at other venues.
Narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart, the documentary brings to light compelling new information and insights into the life-saving “mush across Alaska,” which followed the old Iditarod Trail on a section now designated as part of the Iditarod National Historic Trail.
BLM’s Iditarod National Historic Trail Program provided technical support for the production, and the Iditarod Historic Trail Alliance provided both technical and financial support.
