EU Commission Asks to See Iceland Crisis Doc

The producers of the Icelandic documentary Maybe I Should Have, which features the economic crisis in Iceland, were recently approached by the enlargement division of the European Commission, requesting to see the film.

Positive reviews in the international media apparently caught their attention. Now director Gunnar Sigurdsson will travel to Brussels next month with his documentary to show it to the people assessing Iceland’s EU membership application, RÚV reports.

When asked how he feels about his documentary being an input in Iceland’s application process, Sigurdsson said it can hardly be considered an input. “But hopefully it will have a positive impact. There are beautiful landscape pictures in it. Hopefully it will help speed up the process.”

Sigurdsson doesn’t worry that his film might cause the EU to reject Iceland’s application. “But it’s interesting how thoroughly they’re doing their jobs. They obviously follow discussions closely and what is happening in Iceland.”
