Spring Equinox Indie Collection!

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012 by

Thousands of years in the making (traditionally), the Vernal/Autumnal Equinox occurs every year on March 20th (or March 21st) and in some places signals the beginning of Spring. The sun aligns over the equator and we experience equilibrium between day and night time. The difference in name relates to location: the Vernal Equinox occurs in the Northern Hemisphere and the Autumnal Equinox occurs in the Southern Hemisphere. A second equinox occurs each year on Sept. 22 or 23.

Did You Know?: The Persian New Year occurs on the Spring Equinox!

Having 12 hours of each day and night gives you the perfect chance to create tradition based on the subject, such as watching films focused on the visceral as well as apparent differences between the setting moon and the rising sun. This collection includes such recognizable titles as “Nightmare on Elm Street” and “Dog Day Afternoon”, films that resonate with a multiplicity of film observing cultures around the world. During this equinox learn how our cultures converge on the magic of day and night; dark and light.
