Director Andrew Walton talks about the process of filming "Arctic Son" and the difficulties of gaining his subjects' trust.

"Arctic Son" tells the story of Stanley, Sr., a Native man who is concerned with keeping his people's ancient traditions alive, and his son Stanley, Jr. who was raised in Seattle, and is drifting deeper into drinking and partying. After a lifetime apart, the two are reunited in the raw, quiet beauty of the Canadian Yukon in a story that captures the dialogue between a father and son from vastly different worlds.
