northern films

The island of Sylt in Schleswig Holstein, Northern Germany. It’s a popular tourist destination and has long been a playground for Germany’s rich and famous - and has therefore been called the “German Hamptons” - but all kinds of people vacation here. It has one of the longest unbroken stretches of immaculate sandy beach in all of Europe and is famous for its invigorating sea air, natural dunes, and a sense of space. The island was used during the filming of The Ghost Writer (featuring Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Kim Cattrall & Olivia Williams) as an alternate location for Martha’s Vineyard in the USA, due to travel restrictions on the film’s director, Roman Polanski.

This doesn’t really fit with the style of photography I post on this blog, but this photo has a lot of personal significance for me. When I took this, I had no idea that over the course of the next year I would accomplish my biggest goals and find peace with myself and life. Now in less than 3 months I’ll be returning to this area for art school and I’m so grateful for everything that happened this year. My trip to California last year sparked something in me that made me go after the things I was too afraid to go after before, and for the first time I’m excited for my future.

 Hiya! I’m Rebecca from Northern Ireland and i’m looking for someone to exchange letters with! I think it would be fun to talk to people from all over and get back into letter writing!
I am a young artist hoping to go to university to study art next year! Painting and creating art in general is my thing but i’m also into reading (historical fiction mostly), animation and film, and music (Arctic Monkeys, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and a million others). There isn’t much that I can say I particularly dislike, I have a rather open mind!
It would be pretty rad to chat with some nice folk, preferably English speaking as it’s the only language I am fluent in unfortunately!

The Norwegian Spiral Anomaly of 2009 appeared in the night sky over Norway on December 9th, 2009. It was visible from, and filmed from, Northern Norway and Sweden. The entire event lasted from 2-3 minutes. The official report from Russian sources was that this spectacle was caused by the failed flight of a Russian missile that they claim they launched from the White Sea on that Wednesday night. Many spirals of this same nature have appeared in other places along with Norway in the years since, and all have had the missile explanation plastered to them.

“I really want to do a film in another language. My dad’s from Germany, so it’d be really cool to do a film in German. I’m not quite fluent, but I can get there. And my accent’s pretty good. I wouldn’t feel too out of my element.“
