Beneath the quiet veneer of Iceland lies an invisible nation of Hidden People. This fascinating phenomenon, rarely discussed with outsiders, not only pervades Icelandic culture, but also impacts its infrastructure (e.g., road construction and buildings). This enlightening journey, through Iceland's celestial and mysterious environment, suspends one's state of reality-forcing you to question your own perceptual limitations and the mysteries of the natural world.

This sensitively crafted film tells a story that is important at a time where the world is too bogged down in the material. It is the immaterial, the consciousness, the ability to believe and dream that leads to growth.

The music score is well chosen as are the wide range of people interviewed.We should look forward to more from this young producer and director and I for one will be keeping watch. Not surprisingly I understand that it has now been officially selected for the Australian Film Festival. Go to see this one and enjoy it.
