6-WINNIPEG, FÖSTUDAGUR 5. JÚNÍ 1981 Iceland's Film Industry Continued from page 5 Indridi G. Thorsteinsson, and pro- ducer Jón Hermannsson who are shooting a feature-length motion picture based on The Saga of Gísli. Two sets of replicas of farm buildings from the Settlement Age of Iceland — a period beginning roughly 1100 years ago — have been used to film this dramatic 13th cen- tury tale. Isfilm envisions comple- tiori of this movie by the beginning of 1982 and naturally they are hop- ing for a success that supercedes that of Land and Sons. The Sage of Gísli, a much more expensive under- taking, will have to win some popularity abroad to pay for itself. Controversial themes and social comment Hrafn Gunnlaugsson, a poet and writer, was almost banished from television after his first film, The Crimson Sunset (in black and white), was broadcast in 1976. The Crimson Sunset so upset viewers that Hrafn was not allowed to make another film for television until 1980. His film, Whiplash, adapted from a short story by an author who died young and miserably, compresses into one hour two murders, several horrible revelations, and enough turns of plot to fill a saga. In June 1980, Hrafn's 35mm theatrical feature, The Fathers' Estate (Óðal feðranna), opened in Reykjavík. Its theme is the flight of young people from the country to urban Reykjavik and the plight of those who are caught bet- ween urban and rural life. Hrafn is critical of several aspects of contem- porary Icelandic society — both in the country and the city. As in Land and Sons, the acting in the Fathers' Estate is excellent, and both film- makers have made effective use of non-professionals (one actress, for instance was "discovered at a bus stop") and leading performers from theater and television. Both films share the same visual beauty of the spectacular Icelandic landscapes. The Fathers' Estate joined Land and Sons at the Museum of Modern Art festival in New York, as well as be- ing shown in Chicago and Los Angeles. A new landmark 1980 seems to have been a land- mark year for the Icelandic film in- dustry. As well as those mentioned previously, a number of othet films made their debut during the year. In March, a full-length film for children, Veiðiferðin (The Fishing Trip) by Andrés Indridason was shown for the first time in Reykjavík. Later in the year there was a joint showing of two new films; an independently-made documentary on the western islands of Iceland, Mörg eru dags augu (Daylight Eyes Swarm) by Óli £)rn. Andreasson; and the first all- Icelandic cartoon feature, Thrym- skvida (The Theft of Thor's Ham- mer) by Sigurdur Örn Brynjólfsson. A full-length film based on Pétur Gunnarsson's novel Punktur punktur komma strik was also under production. In addition, there has been an in- crease in the number of foreign companies making films based in Iceland. These include the West German adaptation of Halldor Lax- ness' 1960 novel Paradísarheimt (Paradise Reclaimed), and a Nordic television film about the thirteenth century statesman, poet and historian, Snorri Sturluson. All this activity would seem to in- dicate a healthy future for the film- makers of Iceland. Hopefully, those of us in North America will obtain more access to the creative output of this group of talented Icelanders. apm..........»1».........ii.........iii........iiii........i.............iiii........inuii......iiiiii........iii.....i.............iiiii......i..........iiiii.............iiiii..........1».........»........miiiiii.......imii.....nniiiiiHi......iimiii.......iim.......niini......iiiim.......iiim......In œ Skagfirska söngveitin Meðlimir: ° Heimili Ólafur Vignir Albertsson & Þuríður Einarsdóttir Þverholti 7, Rvk. | Ingimar Guðmundsson / Margrét Guðmundsdóttir Núpabakka 25, Rvk.
