Sisters Keara and Keziah Anderson are from Healy, Alaska. Last year they entered into a film competition called “The Great Untold” put on by Netflix and Adobe. They submitted a trailer and were one of three finalists who were granted prize money, funding, equipment, and mentorship to create a short film.
At the time, the Anderson sisters were living in New Mexico, so they flew home to create their Alaska-set short film “Last To The Wild.” It is now streaming on Netflix’s YouTube channel, along with a documentary that covered the process of making the movie.
ATMI senior producer Daisy Carter spoke with both sisters about their short film, creating a story that felt authentically Alaskan, and how they came to their own decisions to leave their home state in pursuit of their dreams.
