• WINNER: Best Narrative Feature
Director Hlynur Pálmason receives a $3,000 cash prize as well as a film production package of in-kind goods and services, with a total value of $100,000.

Retired from his job as a local policeman and grieving the recent death of his wife, Ingimundur (an excellent Ingvar E. Sigurðsson) channels his quietly brewing grief into the renovation of a secluded house in the remote Icelandic community they called home. But while going through a box of his wife’s old possessions, Ingimundur finds an unexpected memento that directs his detective instincts into increasingly unstable paranoia. With a tone perfectly matching its remote, isolated Icelandic setting, director Hlynur Pálmason’s remarkably confident second feature is a spellbinding, oft-kilter tale of the obsessive ends of unconditional love.

Selected as Iceland’s official entry for the Best International Feature Film Oscar®
