Director Rob Nilsson will appear in person at this special screening of a new 35mm print of the film that won him the Caméra d'Or at Cannes in 1978. Produced by Francis Ford Coppola, Northern Lights (1978) dramatizes the efforts of the Nonpartisan League, a populist movement of North Dakota farmers who, in the early 20th century, fought to support themselves amidst a growing tide of encroachment by out of state interests. Filmed on location in North Dakota, where winter winds sucked the mercury down to as low as forty below zero, the movie stars Robert Behlen, Susan Lynch and Joe Spano.
