Interview with the Director Mark Rose, Filmmaker in the Spotlight for the Feature Documentary ‘Alaska Long Hunters’ at The Moscow International Film Festival.

Mark D. Rose was born in Corvallis, Oregon to a logging family seasoned in the outdoors. At an early age, he and his family moved to Alaska, where he was raised near Juneau. Immersing himself in that challenging environment, he early took up aviation, focusing his career in that direction for the next decades, eventually thrown into the construction of the Alaska Pipeline as a helicopter fleet manager, tasked with building out the mountain network vital to the project. Rose worked and flew in those extremes which pushed him and his colleagues to the edge on many occasions, teaching life lessons that only Alaska and the mountains can.
