Quotes

Himself - Representative from space: Now the aurora is of interest to us because if one of these great impulses of energy comes into the earth's ionosphere, it wipes out long distance radio communications and causes power surges in the high-latitutude power lines and this sort of thing. But more importantly, this magnetosphere is the environment in which we live and we simply need to understand it.

A beautiful, uncanny picture
30 July 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a strange, crystalline artifact, part cinema verité and part unabashed paean to the heavens. The earlier part of the film is almost a comedy of errors, as the film crew films itself on the train to Churchill, Manitoba, and ends up stuck in one of the town's few hotels during a blizzard. For fun, the hotel's owners shoots a hole in the wall with a high-power rifle, and they watch the snowflakes blow through the hole. But once the weather clears and the crew actually gets out to film their announced subject, the northern lights have never shimmered so brightly, in an ethereal silence never to be seen on a National Geographic special.

I saw this film at a conference in North Bay, Ontario -- and got the sense that it isn't seen much in the U.S. Too bad! It would be an excellent candidate for a widescreeen DVD release.
