The Story of Winter: Minnesota’s Most Iconic Season I was Co-Producer and Director of Photography for this documentary.  The movie explores Minnesotans’ identity with winter during the 2013 -2014 season, the worst on record in over 80 years. The Story of Winter: Minnesota’s Most Iconic Season from Alec Johnson on Vimeo. A documentary movie by Alec Johnson and Minnesota DNR Sr. Climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld. The team explores Minnesotans’ identity with their most infamous season, Winter. Very few places in the lower 48 states of North America do cold winters the way Minnesota does. As Kenny mentions in the movie, “If you consider the 5 million plus people that endure it, then no one does it the way Minnesota does it. Love it or hate it, as part of where we are, it is part of who we are.”
