OFFICIAL SELECTION – 2022 CANNES INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (Un Certain Regard)
Award winning writer/director Hylnur Pálmason’s much anticipated follow-up to his breakout hit A White, White Day is a stunning historical drama, inspired by the true story of a Danish priest who made a pilgrimage across a largely unexplored Iceland in the late 1800s.
Lucas (Elliot Crosset Hove), an idealistic but naive young clergyman, is on his way to a remote part of Iceland to build a church and photograph its people. With the help of a translator and guide (Ingvar E. Sigurðsson), he must journey across the spectacular and dangerous terrain, littered with glaciers and rivers. But the deeper he goes into the unforgiving landscape, the more he strays from his purpose, the mission and morality.
