Atlantic Jihad

The film has a strong and dramatic story, well known in Iceland in its outlines but practically unknown elsewhere. The research is new and original. It is full of surprise elements. At the same time, its many of its traits are familiar in the present – fear and joy, loneliness and solidarity, disaster and coping with disaster, the clash of cultures, the questions of lasting value. It has relevance today and striking analogies with recents developments.
