Magnetic Reconnection is a short documentary that contrasts footage of the Northern Lights with images of man-made decay around the town of Churchill in northern Manitoba. Armstrong previously told Exclaim!, "The aurora footage is probably the best footage ever captured, as I travelled with an auroral imaging specialist with two decades of experience, and a custom built digital IMAX camera, purposely built for shooting the northern lights."
