An Alaska Landmine original film: This is Still Anchorage

In the summer of 2019, we produced “This is Anchorage,” a film that explored the growing homelessness problem in Alaska’s largest city. Two years later, the problem remains but has evolved. In March of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the Municipality of Anchorage to take drastic action on how the community provides shelter for the homeless. “This is Still Anchorage” explores the aftermath of that decision and shows what homelessness in Anchorage looks like today.

A big thanks to everyone who contributed to the making of this film and to all who participated in it.

If you enjoyed this film, please consider donating to the Landmine. We rely on donations and support to make films like this possible.

Also loved the 95%of the bikes found in trash cans. Ok.

Rarely speaking with the homeless on an individual level. They’re basically tik tokking the homeless.
