Event description

Description

In the most marvelous Icelandic landscapes, the stage is set for a dense psychological thriller following the ashes of a relationship.

Months after they've broken up, Gunnar is woken up late at night by a call from his former boyfriend, Einar, who is staying at his family's summer home in Rökkur. When Einar confesses that he has the feeling he isn't alone, Gunnar drives out to join him at the secluded and remote site settled among stunning Icelandic vistas.

As the two work to navigate their broken relationship and make amends with the past, knowing that they still haven't gotten over one another, they must also come to terms with their own issues—as well as a mysterious stranger lurking outside the cabin. Erlingur Óttar Thoroddsen skillfully maneuvers among suggestive moods in a drama flourishing in what's left unsaid.

The director will be present for a Q&A at the film.

Directed by Erlingur Óttar Thoroddsen (Iceland, 2017). 109 min. In Icelandic with English subtitles.

**Icelandic events at Scandinavia House are made possible by the Consulate of Iceland in New York and Iceland Naturally in celebration of the centenary of Iceland's independence and sovereignty.
