Visitng Norway every year to escape the stresses and strains of the modern world, Jeff Allen finds peace in northern Scandinavia during the ‘blue time’, where the local Sami people can go for months on end without sun rising above the horizon. Jeff kayaks with whales and longtime friend Bjørn Eines, dog sleds under the wing of Tore Albrigtsen and now guides expeditions so others can experience the beauty of this wonderful place. Captured by filmmaker Greg Dennis, short film The Blue Time charts one of Jeff’s trips, as much about relaxation and meditation as recreation and entertainment.
