Northern Lights Instrueret af John Hanson, Rob Nilsson


Screened on public television and projected extensively around the Midwest, NORTHERN LIGHTS epitomizes this forgotten chapter of unassuming radicalism. Although it somewhat resembles its contemporary DAYS OF HEAVEN in its milieu and its awe, NORTHERN LIGHTS is a closer descendant of the European strain of materialist period cinema exemplified by Bresson’s LANCELOT DU LAC, Brownlow and Mollo’s WINSTANLEY, and Rossellini’s history films.

John Ford’s The Grapes of Wrath seems like the obvious inspiration here, in both its proletarian sentiment and its primal arrangement of characters against the harsh landscape.

It would be easy to accuse directors Rob Nilsson and John Hanson of romanticizing this agrarian age in Northern Lights. The filmmakers never disguise their leftist, pro-worker sympathies or their personal connection to this subject matter… Still, [it’s] a humble, visually arresting work, duly rewarded with the Caméra d’Or at Cannes in 1980… Northern Lights evokes a tremendous sense of the town’s tight-knit community and their land’s sprawling, open vistas.
