Exhibition on Icelandic Films Opens in Copenhagen

The traveling exhibition ISLAND::FILM, presenting the history of Iceland’s film industry since its birth in 1904 and until modern times, opens in Nordatlantens Brygge in Copenhagen today. Almost 100 films will be screened in relation to the exhibition.

Four Icelandic directors will present their work during the so-called “Movie Days.”

The first film will be screened on November 4, Gudný Halldórsdóttir’s Quiet Storm (2007). On the occasion of the opening of the “Movie Days,” Iceland’s Embassy in Copenhagen will offer refreshments to visitors.

The following Tuesday, November 11, Fridrik Thór Fridriksson will screen and talk about his Oscar-nominated classic Children of Nature (1991). On November 18, Baltasar Kormákur will have his turn with his ever-popular 101 Reykjavík (2000).

Finally, Ágúst Gudmundsson will discuss his work following the screening of his film The Seagull’s Laughter (2001) on November 25.

ISLAND::FILM was launched in Berlin last spring. The exhibition will run in Copenhagen until January 25, 2009.
