Northern Lights

(John Hanson & Rob Nilsson, 1978)
New 35mm print!

Thu, Dec 12, 2013 7 PM

Blurring the line between historical fiction and documentary, Northern Lights recounts the struggle of North Dakota grain farmers who collectively form the Nonpartisan League in 1915–16 to fight for better prices from area elevators controlled by banks and railroads. An actual member of the league, 94-year-old Henry Martinson, sets the film in motion, paging through a diary at the beginning of the film. Winner of the Caméra d’Or for best direction for a first feature at the Cannes Film Festival, it remains one of the landmark films of the American independent movement of the 1970s and 80s.
