The trailer from documentary Under an Arctic Sky was published yesterday. Photographer Chris Burkard and filmmaker Ben Weiland came to Iceland in December 2015 with a group of surfers in the hope of being able to surf under the northern lights, ruv.is reports. They succeeded.

This is how the filmmakers described the project on vimeo.com:

“With three hours of light each day, brutal winter storms and freezing temperatures, Iceland is far from the ideal surf trip. However, this didn’t stop photographer Chris Burkard and filmmaker Ben Weiland from rounding up a crew of surfers to seek out unknown waves in the islands remote north… all during the worst storm to hit Iceland’s shores in 25 years.”

The documentary is to premiere this winter.
