This film is probably one of the most captivating documentaries about a side of Iceland that everyone wants to understand better... It's showing this week on the Sundance Channel. Make sure you record it during one of the showings listed below. Watch it more than once. If the Supernatural is not your favorite subject matter, stick with the movie through the very end and you may change your mind. The version I watched twice in 2004 was 90 minutes long, so I am interested to see if I miss the 5 minutes they cut.

The filmmaker Jean Michel Roux made several trips to Iceland for this project to record the stories told by everyone he wanted to put in the movie. Then he had the footage in Icelandic written in French and then he returned to conduct interviews based on the stories the people told only having to translate the final interviews again into French for him to edit the film. He got the idea to do this film when he was doing location scouting for a fictional Sci-Fi film he was developing.

The soundtrack is equally moving featuring Hector Zazou, The Residents, Biosphere and Gorecki. This movie was so popular at the San Francisco Film Festival last year that they had to add two more screenings, totaling 4 screenings. If you want to know what the atmosphere is truly like, you have to visit Iceland, but if you just want to get about 85 minutes inside the remote country and meet its most fascinating residents, then you really must see this movie. Tell as many people you know who are even just remotely curious about Iceland or about the Supernatural.
