Vikingo

In the Dominican Republic, cockfighting is the national sport. One of the best-known breeders is Jón Ingi Gíslason, a farmer’s son from Iceland. Filmmaker Þorfinnur Guðnason tells his story and we meet colourful characters like Gabriel, the eleven-year-old shoe-shine boy who dreams of owning a cock from the Vikingo farm and becoming a famous gallero like Jón Ingi.
