Néon Boréal - Episode 3: Only Fools Rush In


This event has passed
© Sylvain Sabatié

From the fountains of the Bellagio to the aurora borealis, why are we uncontrollably fascinated by the inexplicable and the grandiose? From northern lights to lights that go out, from blinding passion to hopeless love, we encounter a singular poet, a graveyard of extinct neon lights, and a crazed fan of the King. An episode with the safety off, in the arms of Elvis Presley.
