A9ainst

A9ainst is a film about nine participants in a political protest action attempted on the public benches of the Icelandic parliament in December 2008. A year after the non-violent demonstration those nine were charged and prosecuted for an ‘attack against parliament’, with reference to a sort of anti-terrorist clause in the penal code. The film is an attempt to investigate their vision: which lines of thought were pursued by those activists willing to go a few steps further than the general public 40 days before massive demonstrations overthrew Iceland’s government.
