The film has been in the making during three years, the editing was done in close collaboration with filmmaker Gunvor Nelson who has been advising editor on the project. Filmed at the biggest sun power plant in Europe (Spain), Solstices closes in on never before filmed phenomena that occur mainly around winter and summer solstices there. Having worked with light-sculpture during years I see this tower as a gigantic light-sculpture in a landscape that appears in a time when we struggle to find our way into the future. Possibly it is also a portrait of sunlight – which through the gigantic mirrors and time – has been geared-down to where it is possible to see?
