Documentary Serum Run-3

File - In this 1925 file photo, Gunnar Kaasen poses with his original dog team which he drove through a blinding blizzard to Nome, Alaska to deliver an diphtheria serum to save the town from being wiped out by the disease in 1925. A documentary detailing a 1925 delivery of life-saving serum by Alaska sled dog relay teams is opening the Anchorage International Film Festival on Friday Dec. 5, 2013. The 5 ½-day run to Nome after a diphtheria breakout is detailed in "Icebound," by New York filmmaker Daniel Anker. (AP Photo)
