Degrees North is a feature documentary shot south to north across the latitudes of Canada by Dawson City’s Dan Sokolowski. An exploration of the beauty of the North through 16mm film, it begins at Pelee Island (42 degrees North) and finishes at the Arctic Circle (66 degrees North). Using light, colour and composition, Degrees North is an alchemistic blend of live action landscape photography, animation, and music by Peter Togni, Sanctuary, Rebecca Campbell and Ian Tamblyn.
Degrees North will be preceded by three short films from Yukon: Andrew Connors’ Come Back Little Star, Daniel Janke’s Finding Milton, and Lulu Keating’s Dawson Town Melted Down.
Filmmakers: Dan Sokolowski, Andrew Connors, Daniel Janke, Lulu Keating
