Film details

Northern Lights
by John Hanson, Rob Nilsson

Northern Lights has the feel of an old black and white photograph discovered in an attic. The bitter-sweet story of young lovers caught up in an political struggle waged by farmers against the grain trade, the banks and the railroads, Northern Lights brings back a forgotten era of American history and evokes the austere beauty of the Northern Plains.
