Between the Glacier and the Sea
This award-winning documentary, produced by the Valdez Museum in 2008, tells the story of the Good Friday Earthquake’s impact upon Valdez and the unique circumstances that led to the town’s founding and eventual demise. Starting with the Gold Rush of 1898, viewers will learn why Old Valdez was founded on the glacial moraine that liquefied when the earthquake struck. The movie features heartbreaking interviews with those who lived in Valdez in 1964 and survived to tell their stories. “Between the Glacier and the Sea” is shown continuously at the Remembering Old Valdez Exhibit and is also for sale on DVD through the museum store.
