Gnarr Documentary Screened at Tribeca

By Iceland Review

gnarr-posterThe documentary Gnarr, which features the Best Party’s victory in the Icelandic municipal elections in 2010 and comedian Jón Gnarr’s appointment as mayor of Reykjavík, will be screened at the Tribeca film festival in New York at Easter.

“It is very pleasing to enter such a large and grand festival,” the documentary’s director, Gaukur Úlfarsson, told Fréttabladid. He will attend the festival along with Gnarr, Heida Kristín Helgadóttir, the Best Party’s manager, and the film’s producers.

“If you’re not making a Hollywood blockbuster, this is the way to catch attention,” Úlfarsson added. After Tribeca, Gnarr will be screened at the largest documentary festival in North America, Shorts and Docs in Toronto.

Meanwhile, Eldfjall (“Volcano”), the first movie by director Rúnar Rúnarsson, will premiere at the film festival in Cannes on May 13, competing both in the category of Directors Fortnight and Camera d’Or.
