Building Connections

Reclaiming Lost Narratives of the Alaska–Canada Highway
Premiered November 3, 2007

 

World War II represented the battle for freedom in the Western World. But less well known is the fact that construction of the Alaska–Canada Highway, or “ALCAN,” became a beacon of pride and optimism in the dark days that followed the bombing of Pearl Harbor. In the award–winning “Building Connections: Reclaiming Lost Narratives of the Alaska–Canada Highway,” MediaLab at PLU shows how construction of the ALCAN Highway helped alter the course
of history.
