Last month, the Covering International Festivals: Iceland class of 2015 flew to Reykjavík, Iceland to explore the city and dive into the music and culture of the beautiful Nordic island. Now that we’re back, we have an hour long documentary full of stories to share. After checking out bands like Dream Wife and Úlfur Úlfur, the seven of us are well-acquainted with Icelandic music. But it’s not all about the music. We interviewed some incredible people about topics we found most interesting, things like architecture, Paganism, Magical Staves, violence against women, Feminism, LGBTQA+ rights, and the Syrian Refugee Crisis. The documentary will showcase the reports of Andriana Bozovic, Meg Caldwell, Laura Kondourajian, Shannon Elder, Benedict Jones, Katie Gwen, and myself!
