On the latest edition of Mush! You Huskies, we interviewed filmmaker Alex Stein about his new behind-the-scenes documentary about the Iditarod: MUSH the Movie
Stein is not only a filmmaker but an avid fan of the The Last Great Race, the Iditarod and spent the better part of two years making a film that tells the stories that few hear about the race from Anchorage to Nome, some 1049 miles of the roughest terrain in the world.
MUSH will premiere at the Anchorage International Film Festival on December 5th and 11th. Click on the links below for more information.
Mush! You Huskies is hosted by Robert and Michele Forto. Robert is in Alaska training for his first Iditarod and running his qualifying races this year. He is racing under the Team Ineka banner. Michele is the lead trainer at Denver Dog Works and specializes in services dogs and board and train programs.
