Picture of Light

    Director: Peter Mettler
    CANADA, SWITZERLAND / 1994 / Color / 35mm / 83 min

Picture of Light is an hallucinatory documentary tale which documents a filmmaker’s journey to Canada’s arctic in search of the Northern Lights. While combining glimpses of the characters who live in this remote environment and the crew’s 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.
