In the process of trying to film the northern lights, all sorts of other things are considered: snow banks indoors formed by a dime-sized hole in the wall; kinds of frostbite; Inuit names for various sorts of ice; native myths, values, and practices about looking at the lights; modern civilization and its visual culture (the narrator says that there is talk of making a virtual reality that will keep us busy and entertain us (this film was released in 1994)).

This movie is beautiful!! The lights, the dialouge, the music. Stunning!! One that you can watch over and over again. Filmed in the early '90's in the land of ice and darkness.
