Surviving Alone in Alaska

As the term of then-president Jimmy Carter was about to end, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge has just been completed. It is a 20-acre area filled with different flora and fauna. Hunters and oil seekers were not allowed to enter the premises in order to preserve the natural life in the refuge. Initially, cabins were designated to six families who were allowed to live in the wild. However, today there is only one person left to survive in the Alaskan Wilderness. He is Heimo Korth, an American outdoorsman living with his wife and family far from civilization for more than 30 years.

Heimo Korth and his Eskimo wife is a subject of a documentary produced by VICE. The film features how Heimo and his wife lived together in unforgiving weather, hunting for their own food as well as surviving despite being surrounded by wild animals.
