WINTER LIGHT is a poetic film from the archipelago of Lofoten in winter. After weeks of low autumn light, the sun sinks below the horizon and stays there during the depth of winter. But the scarce light has its subtle beauty, as it falls on people's everyday life as well as the unique Arctic landscape.
