Under the Aurora shares stories of struggle, survival and dreams from the circumpolar north, a place where everyone is searching for light in a dark world. The film takes us around Earth’s magnetic oval, across a darkening Arctic where fleeting blasts of auroral light punctuate the long winter nights. We witness the personal struggles of resilient people who live under the northern lights.
This project is in development as a feature documentary with Knowledge Network. The story is from the points of view of compelling northern characters from Greenland, Iceland, Yukon, Northwest Territories, Alaska and Norway.
