The Journey Home – Tales from Iceland´s far North

Situated in Iceland´s northernmost region, Árneshreppur is the country´s remotest and most secluded community.  María Guðmundsdóttir, one of Iceland´s most celebrated photographers, grew up in Árneshreppur parish and despite her globe-trotting lifestyle, this is the place she loves the most. She takes us on this journey home to meet her locals, experience their way and look on life.

The interviews are conducted by renowned novelist Vigdís Grímsdóttir. The one hour film is directed by Anna Dís Ólafsdóttir, produced by Profilm in co-production with Bláus Art and it received support from The Icelandic Film Fund.  It will be broadcast on Icelandic State Broadcasting Service (RUV) as a part of their Christmas Season 2015.
