Cascade of Light| 24mins
Director: Marten Berkman | Producer: Marten Berkman
Focus Years: 2009 | Country: Canada
In the arctic, some adventures make the spirit dance. Marten leaves the city for an adventure down a remote arctic river, to perpetual light and the spectacle of arctic life. In the mountains and whitewater, his friend and guide Rob reflects on the meaning of the wild, while Marten ponders the price being paid for our industrialized lives. He discovers how awareness, not crisis, must define our relationship with the rest of the natural world. In the space, silence and light, the geography of the Arctic uncovers a choreography of the soul, and provides Marten with insight of an unexpected kind.
