Unique Iceland Documentary in the Making

UK-based film producers Heather Millard and Charlie Southall are working a new and unique documentary concept There & Back Again about the current economic climate in Iceland—for, with, and by the people.

The focus of the project will be on the human element of the crisis; the stories of people who have been affected by it, as Millard described in a press release.

“Whilst at the Berlinale [Berlin International Film Festival] last week I met with the Icelandic Film Centre who are very interested in the project and Green Light Films,” Millard said, adding:

“Green Light Films, which are part of the SENA group, have signed a letter of distribution intent. Providing the film gets made they have agreed to distribute it in Icelandic cinemas, television and on DVD.”

Millard and Southall launched a website to support their project on Sunday last week and after only a few days they had received a high number of hits and more than 130 people had joined their group on Facebook.

The duo is asking for individuals and organization to contribute with financial donations, time, skills and opinions. The funds raised will be used for hiring a production crew from Iceland in an effort to counteract the growing unemployment rates.

“So far, we have received numerous offers of help, including a presenter, sound engineer, post production facilities, PR services and a production manager to name but a few,” Millard said.
