IMAX footage of the aurora borealis in Churchill, Manitoba

Featuring an original score by Jim O'Rourke (Gastr Del Sol, Sonic Youth, Wilco) a voice-over by Will Oldham (Bonnie "Prince Billy, Matewan, Old Joy) and some of the best footage of the aurora borealis, the film shows nature's regenerative power and the futility of our struggle against the process of decay.
