We live in a time where things do not seem to exist if they are not captured as an image. But if you look into darkness you may see the lights of your own retina - not unlike the Northern Lights, not unlike the movements of thought, like shapeless accumulation of everything we have ever seen.Before science explained them, the Northern Lights were interpreted as visions, prophecies, spirits - a trigger for the imagination - images provided by nature framed by no less than the universe itself.Aurora borealis the lights with no bodies, pouring colours from the sky. a film exploring the capture of images from nature, images more special than any special effect.
