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.

Priestley draws the viewer in with beautiful fractals and a fluctuating flow-state, demanding and rewarding their surrender to the film’s dreamlike rhythm.
