Set against the backdrop of a town’s annual snowmobile race, Northern Light interweaves captivating stories of recession-era America. The lives of three families change profoundly in the north woods of Michigan, where winters are unforgiving, jobs are hard to come by, and the line between living life and merely surviving is razor-thin.

“Cool in tone and temperature, Nick Bentgen’s Northern Light turns white vistas and blue language into a sneakily compelling, endlessly patient observation of three working-class families in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.”

—Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

The Cinema of Substance Series showcases meaningful films from around the world that explore who we are and how we might be.

Co-sponsored by the Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics and the School of Cinematic Arts
