Did You Know?

Peter Mettler - Cinematography and Direction:We live in a time where things do not seem to exist unless they are contained as an image - but if you look into this darkness you may see the lights of your own retina. Not unlike the Northern Lights. Not unlike the movements of thought. Like a shapeless accumulation of everything we have ever seen.See more »

Fascinating documentary, 1 May 2000
Author: Greg Magne ( from Toronto, ON, Canada

Definitely a must-see if you're interested in the Aurora Borealis phenomenon and enjoy unique documentaries. This film contains an interesting blend of quirky comedy, extraordinary cinematography and, of course, fascinating images of the northern lights. Peter Mettler and his crew examine northern culture and film the lights in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada while braving -30 degree temperatures!
