Enjoy this gorgeously-photographed short documentary about a family who lives off the grid. Their hand-built house is beautiful, cocooned in a glass geodesic dome allowing for a year-round vegetable garden.

And it doesn’t hurt the picturesque quality of the location that it is far enough North to have nights with the Northern Lights scintillating above.

I can’t find any information on the equipment used to shoot it. If I had to guess, the filmmakers probably had a DSLR with some nice fast primes and a tripod, and then made use of the ample natural light.

This is a great example of how you can let the atmosphere created by the subjects of a documentary create the entire tone of a piece.

A website for the film can be found here, and yes, it has English translations.
