I saw Northern Lights years ago on VHS. I was extremely pleased with its gritty reality, sensitivity to Norwegian immigrants, and awareness that something very important happened in the frigid north lands in the early 20th Century. There is a certain realistic world view among North Dakotans. Add to that a sense that people can work together to survive. Since the film is not available, I'm forgetting the look of the photography. But do remember how striking the black, white and gray seemed. It suited my memory of childhood farm life on the plains. I have looked for a DVD source of this movie for a long time, and am glad a friend recommended IMDb.com to me as a way to find someone who knew about it. It is unknown to most people whom I ask about it. As a North Dakota native, I want this work released on DVD.
