The Northern Lights Film Series highlights films with an emphasis on Iceland and other circumpolar nations including Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Russia, Greenland and Canada’s North! In the early 2000s, a young Gimli Film Festival focused nearly exclusively on this circumpolar them. Since then, the Festival has grown to celebrate films from all corners of the earth, but our Northern Lights Film Series remains a keystone element of the Festival’s annual programming.

ABOUT ENDLESSNESS is a reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendor and banality. We wander, dreamlike, gently guided by our Scheherazade-esque narrator. Inconsequential moments take on the same significance as historical events: a couple floats over a war-torn Cologne; on the way to a birthday party, a father stops to tie his daughter's shoelaces in the pouring rain; teenage girls dance outside a cafe; a defeated army marches to a prisoner-of-war camp. Simultaneously an ode and a lament, ABOUT ENDLESSNESS presents a kaleidoscope of all that is eternally human, an infinite story of the vulnerability of existence.
