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.
