Picture of Light
Director: Peter Mettler
CANADA, SWITZERLAND / 1994 / Color / 35mm / 83 min
Picture of Light is an hallucinatory documentary tale which documents a filmmakers journey to Canadas arctic in search of the Northern Lights. While combining glimpses of the characters who live in this remote environment and the crews both comic and absurd attempts to deal with extremes, the film reflects upon the paradoxes involved in trying to capture the natural wonder of the Northern Lights on celluloid.
