Funding a director’s first full-length film is difficult anywhere in the world, but Iceland is also a small market for cinema. According to recent statistics, fewer women have directed films in the past ten years, than they did thirty or forty years ago, even though more movies are being made. Film making is a long process with many twists and turns along the way.

From there, she has taken her film to several film festivals around the world.
