Difficult personalities and coping with tragedy are the chief themes of Brothers in Midnight Sun, a narrative short that follows two aging brothers, Arne and Leif. While taking part in the therapeutic tradition of fishing, the brothers must confront a lurking tragedy that awaits them. Told with simple camera work and set against a stunning natural background, this short ponders the bond of brotherhood and the potential forces that can break that bond.
