Rating:
R
Salmonberries is a 1993 drama set at a remote Alaskan outpost, telling the story of Kotzebue (k.d. lang), a quiet young woman who works as a laborer on the Alaskan pipeline. Kotzebue becomes interested in the town's local librarian, Roswitha (Rosel Zech), and shows up at the library hoping to find some information about her long-lost father. Although that initial meeting goes badly, Kotzebue later shows up at Roswitha's home, offering a fish as a gesture of friendship. Eventually the two become close, sharing in common a deep loneliness and difficult memories of their past. Roswitha herself retreated to Alaska following the death of her husband, shot while trying to escape across the Berlin Wall. These two women attempt to make a connection that is deeper than just sex. Salmonberries is written and directed by Percy Adlon and was the winner of the Best Film award at the 1991 Montreal Film Festival.
