Picture of Light

Edition 1994

Director: Peter Mettler Composer: Jim O'Rourke With: Gavin Connor, Brian Ladoon, Don Lind
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 light 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. 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.
