DIRECTOR: Benedikt Erlingsson - ICELAND

This dry, very Icelandic comedy is a country romance about the human streak in the horse and the horse in the human. Love and death become interlaced with immense consequences through several interlinked short episodes that follow the inhabitants of an isolated hamlet. “This is not a straightforward story. I hope that the title gives the right point of view. And of course it must be said that here in the north, women are also men. It is important to state that no horses were hurt in the making of this film. The entire cast and crew are horse owners and horse lovers….  I must admit, however, that there were some human actors who were traumatized, but I happen to know that they were still alive when this was written.”—Benedikt Erlingsson. Winner of the Best Director Prize at the Tokyo International Film Festival, Of Horses and Men is this year’s Icelandic submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. (81 mins.)

First feature.

Sponsored by the Icelandic National League and the Scandinavian Heritage Foundation.


Interests: Oscar Submissions, Narrative Feature, Comedy.
