Descent into the Maelstrom - Trailer

DESCENT_INTO_THE_MAELSTROM_01

In 1980, Philip Glass wrote a piece of music inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s short story “A Descent into the Maelstrom”, which in turn was inspired by Moskenesstraumen – a unique natural phenomenon outside the Lofoten islands. In this documentary, we follow the Arctic Philharmonic Orchestra and the people who live in the weather bitten Lofoten Islands. With its powerful music and majestic landscapes, DESCENT INTO THE MAELSTROM is an ode to the beauty and harsh living conditions of Northern Norway.
