A short documentary film contrasting the Northern Lights with decaying manmade debris littered throughout the landscape surrounding the town of Churchill, Manitoba in Canada's Arctic. The film touches on the regenerative power of nature and the futility of mankind’s struggle against the eventual processes of decay. Featuring an original score by Jim O'Rourke (Sonic Youth, Wilco) a voice-over by Will Oldham (Matewan, Old Joy) and some of the best footage of the aurora borealis ever captured.

The film received its premiere at AFI Fest 2012 and has since been selected for SXSW 2013, the 51st Annual Ann Arbor Film Festival, True/False Film Festival, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, received a Jury's Citation Award from the touring Black Maria Film Festival, was selected for the Art Galley of Alberta's 2013 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art and opened the 2013 Nordlys Film Festival. More announcements to come.
