Director/DP Fritz Mueller came to the Yukon as a research scientist working on his graduate thesis and has worked across the North as a biologist and photographer. For over two decades he’s been chasing stories across Canada’s North, focusing his lens on a wide range of subjects from migrating caribou to national parks to indigenous communities.
Fritz has been the official Adäka photographer since the festival’s inaugural year. He’s a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and a member of Screen Production Yukon Association, Yukon Film Society, DOC and European Documentary Network. His second TV documentary, Aurora Love, is in post-production.
Producer, editor and writer Teresa Earle is completing two documentaries and two digital media projects produced and filmed in the North. She is a seasoned creative professional with 20 years of experience producing projects as diverse as videos, books, websites and exhibits.
Teresa is a member of DOC, Women in Film + TV Vancouver, Yukon Film Society, and she is a board member of Screen Production Yukon Assn.
YUKON FIRST NATIONS CULTURE & TOURISM ASSOCIATION
Journeys to Adäka is the result of a decade of collaborations between YFNCT, the film’s director and producer, and Yukon’s indigenous artists, performers and culture bearers. In addition to making a funding commitment, YFNCT’s president, board members, and executive director served as advisors and partners in the making of the documentary. The organization supports Yukon First Nations artists, performers, cultural centres and tourism entrepreneurs, and also presents the Adäka Cultural Festival, a world-class multi-disciplinary cultural festival held every summer at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre in Whitehorse.
