The film follows the adventures of the two Icelandic personalities who have previously enjoyed popularity both on television and on stage but are now taking their first steps on the big screen.
The film introduces children to the magical world of cinema, while providing quality entertainment for the entire family.
Skoppa and Skrítla, the cheery protagonists, are amazing beings from the Land of Adventure, where everyone is celestial, sweet, and sincere.
Through song and dance the film offers a message about the wisdom of hopeful wishing and the lasting values of friendship.
While leading children on an adventure through wildlife and natural locales, the film stimulates the imaginations of those of an age of awe and learning.
The Scandinavia House will be screening other Nordic movies in the coming months.
On April 28 and May 1, The Higher Force, a 2008 comedy by Ólafur Jóhannesson, is up, and on May 5 and 8, New Yorkers can watch the crisis documentary God Bless Iceland by Helgi Felixson, which premiered on the anniversary of the banking collapse in Iceland on October 6, 2009.
