The Dempster (Joe Henry) Highway is the only road in Canada that crosses the Arctic Circle.
It is the meeting of a man made entity and some of the most isolated landscapes on the planet.

Locally, it is often referred to as "The Joe Henry Highway" in honour of Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in Elder Joe Henry,
who was instrumental in the construction of the highway that passes through their traditional lands.

Ghosts of the Joe Henry is an assemblage of sensations of the land, the people,
flora and fauna that inhabit the lands that the highway traverses.

Featuring music by Peter Cox, The Han Singers and George McConkey.

26 min, September 2015.

Commissioned by the
