'Smokin' Fish' up close

Ever seen a Umiak? Here's a close- up of the boat Alaskan Native American Corey Mann, a Tlingit, uses to catch salmon in the new documentary "Smokin Fish."  Later this month, it will be shown at the Olympia Film Festival in Washington, the Winterer’s Gathering and Arctic Film Festival in Minnesota, and in Paris France. But  this week, you're invited to the film's Louisiana premier on Sunday, 3:30 p.m. at the Pontchartrain Film Festival at Slidell Little Theatre, 2024 Nellie Drive off the Interstate 10 Fremeaux Exit.
