“Apotheosis” is a Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film Of A Solar Storm In Iceland By Henry Jun Wah Lee.
Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Henry Jun Wah Lee
Music by: Ludovico Einaudi (“Experience”)
“The past year I have been filming the Northern Lights in Iceland during the Solar Maximum — the peak of solar activity that occurs every 10-11 years.
On March 17th, 2015, I was fortunate enough to be at the right place at the right time when the solar storm of the decade hit Earth. The sky was covered with auroras so strong, they were visible at dusk. This continued all night until dawn. In the film you will see rare red, yellow, white, blue and violet purple auroras.
I was also fortunate to get shots of aurora borealis lighting up the sky while the Bárðarbunga volcano was erupting. The orange/red glow you will see in the distance is from the hot lava spewing from the volcano.”
