Every earthquake starts in the size of a grain

In this thought-provoking and visually stunning black and white film we follow a group of international geo-scientists in Lofoten as they are exploring the Arctic landscape, hoping to find reasons why the site is particularly vulnerable to deep and potentially devastating earthquakes. An exceptionally well-preserved field site gives the scientists a rare look into exposed rocks that were once deep below the surface of the earth. After millions of years of erosion, the rocks now show visible traces of ancient earthquakes as ‘scars’, so-called Pseudotachylytes.
