Synopsis

A portrait of a depopulated fishing village in Børfjord, northern Norway, surrounded by Arctic nature. Most of the year, the village lies empty with virgin snow between cold houses, but the cycles of nature go on regardless. This 12 min documentary was filmed in 70mm Super Panavision, using a specially developed "nature animation" technique. The result is a magic flight in one single shot along the remains of an internal village road. At the same time a whole year passes by at 50,000 times normal speed. [www.cameramagica.no]
