Documentary Short / History

HOMECOMING SONG is a poetic documentary that tells the parallel stories of two men who returned home, and the ancient song that connects them. Many years ago a young man from Southeast Alaska disappeared at sea, and was thought lost by his family and people. Three years later he returned with a song telling of his experiences. Years later, a young First Nations man named Pete Sidney went off to fight in WW2. When he came back after being away for six years, his mother Angela sang this song for him.
