Double bill! Birth of an Island and Eyjafjallajokull erupts  Valdimar Leifsson

An excellent short documentary film with beautiful images of waterfalls, volcanoes, eruptions and glaciers and interesting commentary about Iceland’s formation.  A great introduction to Iceland for first time visitors, people who didn’t like their school geography teacher and want to learn some now or as a recap to help it all make sense if you’ve already been to Iceland.

Everyone has memories of where they were in 2010 when the ash cloud spread from Iceland. At our last event we showed a short film about the farm under the glacier –  this film is full of striking images accompanied by a fitting Icelandic musical soundtrack.

 

Autumn 2019: date to be confirmed

Cannes Film Festival Winner 2016!  RAMS  Grímur Hákonarson

This unusual film is billed as a comedy, which by Icelandic standards it is. However, it also portrays brilliantly the isolation of remote North Iceland and its harsh way of life. Two brothers, each with the pride and stubbornness that is so characteristic of this secluded island nation refuse to communicate even though they live next door to each other. Their sheep, a special and highly revered breed are threatened by disease and have to be culled. In keeping with so many Icelandic dramas that I have read or watched, the ending is quite unexpected.

 

BOOKING: Please email office@icelandtraveller.co.uk to tell us the date that you’ll be joining us and the number of guests. There is no charge for the film, please buy your own drinks and snacks on arrival.

LOCATION: Thames Ditton and Esher Golf Club, Portsmouth Road, Esher, Surrey KT10 9AL

We are next to the Marquis of Granby Pub. The easiest access from the A309 is to turn off the road into the pub car park. From Esher turn left off the A307 as you approach the roundabout. On your SAT NAV make for the Marquis of Granby and look for us in the white building next door.
