“Blends elements of heartfelt tragedy with absurdist comedy, conjuring a humanist portrait of life in which community and loneliness coexist in a landscape of contradictions – geographical, personal, and political”~Mark Kermode, The Guardian

Aroview: A quintessentially Icelandic serio-comedy from the director of RAMS about one woman’s fight against a monopolistic co-op stifling the livelihoods of farmers in a remote valley near Reykjavik.

This David vs. Goliath story plays out in a windswept hamlet, where a widowed farmer (Arndis Hronn Egilsdottir, in a quietly defiant performance) is grieving the unexpected death of her husband while going up against the male dominated agriculture industry.
