In an age of adrenaline packed adventures about egos in the wilderness, river guide Rob Hansen takes his city friend Marten on a different kind of journey into the wild. They follow a river to the Arctic Ocean, to perpetual light and the spectacle of arctic life.
Here they discover the greatest journey isn’t the one they paddle or walk...
What they’re saying...
"For me, this film was a wonderful poetic expression of what all humanity wants, a connection with the Universal Mind if you will. Surely we are all divine, all natural heroes, once we dispense with our dualistic thoughts of right and wrong, good and bad, and one of the easiest ways to access this understanding is through communing with nature, beyond thought. Of course, we don't have to go on a river trip in the Yukon to experience our connection and interdependence with the universe, but observing nature is a ready portal to this understanding. And what a majestic space to gain perspective! For what is "up" and what is "down" in your office simply doesn't exist out in space. The filming was beautiful, the music uplifting, the people heroic."

Cascade of Light grew from the soul of the North. It is a rare and precious thing. Marten’s work has earned my respect.
