SPOTLIGHT: Film Director Andrew Telling

In the third chapter of his film trilogy with Irish artist Conor Harrington, film director Andrew Telling journeyed to north Norway as part of the 2012 arts event Komafest.

The semi-abandoned island of Vardø, situated within the artic circle, is an inspired location. With an expansive landscape and endles light it provides the perfect backdrop for Harrington’s skillful craft.
