What if a country rewrote its constitution using ordinary citizens and social media? That's just what happened in Iceland in 2012. Blueberry Soup is an extraordinary documentary at the epicentre of one of this centuries most inspiring democratic movements: "The Icelandic People's Movement". The film is a deeply touching account of an empowered nation re-envisioning democracy through the drafting of its constitution. If given a second chance, how does a nation rebuild?
