Shadow Chasers

Shadow Chasers

This feature-length documentary is a portrait of eclipse chasers, people for whom solar eclipses - among nature's more spectacular phenomena – are a veritable obsession. The film follows 4 of them as they travel incredible distances to witness the last total eclipse of the millennium as it sweeps eastward across Europe to India. At various points along the way enthusiasts Alain Cirou in France, Paul Houde in Austria, Olivier Staiger in Germany and Debasis Sarkar in India offer their impressions of the historic event.

    This is a fantastic film, which describes all the technical aspects behind a solar eclipse. It is a must see for every person who loves sky watching. I am sure that this film shall take you to a new dimension, and teach you a lot about the beautiful natural phenomenon, the Total Solar Eclipse.
