Filmmaker Jordan Halland and his team hike deep into the frozen heart of Alaska’s Mendenhall Glacier to capture ice climbing in a whole new light. Filmed entirely at night in sub-arctic temperatures, Brighter Night is the result of an idea filmmaker Jordan Halland hasn’t been able to shake since his first shoot on a glacier almost a decade ago. When his headlamp hit the glacier just right the whole ice field seemed to light up. He knew one day he would be back to use the natural quality of the ice to his cinematic advantage.
