** U.S. Premiere! **

(Joanna Priestley, Portland, OR, US, 2018, 60 min.)

North of Blue is an electrifying film that at once shatters the distinction between our modern technological reality and the ancient traditions of Canada’s Yukon Territory. Its focus is on the world of images, chronicling a series of shifting designs and patterns accompanied by sounds that flutter in and out of harmony with the visuals. Priestley draws the viewer in with beautiful fractals and a fluctuating flow-state, demanding and rewarding their surrender to the film’s dreamlike rhythm.
