Iceland in the Midnight Sun

For 17 days this past June, time­lapse cin­e­matog­ra­ph­er Joe Capra trav­eled across Ice­land, cap­tur­ing its nat­ur­al beau­ty dur­ing the months when the sun nev­er sets and nev­er ris­es. Mak­ing Mid­night Sun was no easy feat. Capra worked at it around the clock, tak­ing 38,000 images and trav­el­ing 2900 miles. Our rec­om­men­da­tion? Watch the film on Vimeo, in HD and with a full screen.

Bonus: Don’t miss this new Cam­bridge Ideas film, Mem­o­ries of Old Awake, that looks at how Ice­land’s cen­turies old sagas are deeply inter­twined with the every­day lives of peo­ple who live there.
