On April 14th 2010 the earth opened up for the second time in less than a month at Eyjafjallajökull in Southern Iceland. The volcanic eruption melted the ice cap, flooded the nearby farms and spewed 70 tons of ash into the stratosphere per second and disrupted air traffic throughout Northern Europe. It forced many flight cancellations and stranded thousands of passengers. The disruption captured the world’s attention. When the airlines resumed their normal routes and headlines started to fade, the farmers under the volcano were fighting for their livestock and livelihood as they still are today.

The film ‘ASH’ follows three farming families living under the volcano over the course of a year to see the effect of the ash on their lives and livelihood. It is a character-driven creative documentary about the aftermath under the volcano.

At the tender age of 70 she started recording and releasing her own music straight from the living room. 7 years later she had 59 albums to her name with more than 600 songs – an eccentric myriad of catchy compositions mixing in her pets, found toys, kitchen percussion and Casio keyboards. Sigridur Nielsdottir is her name, and before long the Icelandic/Danish musician became an adored cult figure in the Icelandic music scene, represented here by her young apprentices Mugison, Mum, and Seabear. Shot mostly on Super-8 and 16mm ‘Grandma Lo-fi’ is a cinematic tribute to her boundless creativity.

This DIY quality that infuses her music also flows through into the construction of the documentary itself. The artistic triumvirate that created this film all come from disparate backgrounds. Fine art, animation, music – all artistic forms pervade the texture of this documentary, which was entirely shot on 8mm and 16mm film. Employing a handmade quality reminiscent of Michel Gondry’s best work, Grandma Lo-Fi intersperses hand-drawn animation, photo-collages, stop-motion, even the pops and crackles of the celluloid itself to create a gorgeous, almost tangible, textural quality to the film.

The Iceland government started the largest project in the history of Iceland, to turn its wilderness and beautiful nature into a massive system of hydro-electric and geothermal power plants with dams and reservoirs to provide Alcoa cheap electricity for an aluminum smelter. Environmental activists view these actions as criminal, and left-wing economists believe they will bring only a temporary boost to the economy, rather than structural growth. But some Icelanders view this opportunity with Alcoa as the last chance to realize a century-long industrial dream for this country. Today Iceland is left holding a huge debt and an uncertain future.
