Trailer for Picture of Light.

Picture of Light is a poetic essay documenting the search for a natural wonder, the mysterious aurora borealis. After a casual dinner where his conversation partner mentioned he’d like to see the northern fights filmed, the ethereal colours pouring from the sky lure a small film team of six to Canada’s Arctic. After strenuous and complicated technical preparations, which include protecting the camera against temperatures dropping to -40 C, and carrying 50 pounds of batteries in their luggage, they set out on a 3,000-mile train journey through practically uninhabited landscapes toward the end of the civilized world—Churchill, Manitoba. Picture of Light begins as an exploration of Canada’s Arctic but becomes a beautiful, seemingly impossible, impression of light and our relationship to it.
