Life Under the Arctic Sky

Saturdays at 3:30pm and
January 7 at 7pm

Two hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle, near the jagged tips of Norway's crown, the sun does not set for weeks on end during the summer months, and the midnight sun bounces off fields of midsummer snow. This Dome360 film features the Sami People of northern Scandinavia as they follow the reindeer migrations, much like their ancestors. The show includes the Northern Lights, dog sledding trips, and legends of the arctic fox. A total of 10 filming expeditions and 105 days were made to the Arctic to capture the Northern Lights, the Sami and their reindeer, and the beautiful Arctic scenery.
