“Maybe the very best part is missing?”, master Haida carver, Stormy, muses in this short zen-like piece about making a canoe by hand on an island in Alaska.

Unable to seaplane off the island due to inclement weather, our small film crew decided to make the most of our unexpected day off by finding a story. We found Stormy. There is something about the way Stormy approaches life, nature, work, and love that made a big ripple in our lives. Many thanks + much respect to you Stormy Hamar.
