Tilde von Overbeck,
The production ran into a problem with the streetlights of Iqaluit and Apex during filming in Nunavut. The streetlights in these locations are sodium-based and cast an unusual orange-green hue, especially when captured on camera. The production asked the Qulliq Energy Corporation of Nunavut for permission to turn off 50 lights for filming, but was told it would cost at least $22,500 for turning off just 15 lights and would cost much more to turn off the full 50 lights, something the production had not expected and therefore had not allocated any of their production budget for. This led the production to many discussions over several months with the Iqaluit City Council for assistance in turning off the lights. See more »
This was my favorite film from the 2016 Cannes Film Festival; and a must see. The entire audience loved it and it was shown in what was likely one of the largest theaters I had been in prior to Cannes. The plot and shots make it seem very Canadian, but it is a great film and should be watched by everyone.
It is well written, directed and the cast does a very good job. The cinematography is great and does a good job at immersing the audience in the story.
The director is now one that I will follow.
Thanks for making such a wonderful film.
Go check it out!
