冰岛电影中心上内容简介http://www.icelandicfilms.info/films/nr/1466

2010年冰岛火山爆发,火山灰以每秒70吨的速度喷发,几乎所有经过此的航线都停运了。一个小国当时却引起了全世界的关注。当航线恢复,众人的关注淡去时,生活在火山附近的冰岛人民还在试图抢救牲畜,挽救自己的生活。该片就跟着三个这样的家庭看看这场灾难带给他们的影响。

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.

Grandma Lo-Fi: The Basement Tapes of Sigridur Nielsdottir

时长:62 min

制片国家:冰岛

年代:2012(冰岛院线上映年份)

导演: Orri Jónsson, Kristín Björk Kristjánsdóttir, Ingibjörg Birgisdóttir

(冰岛电影中心里这三个人的简历都很少,http://www.icelandicfilms.info/person/nr/1981 http://www.icelandicfilms.info/person/nr/9010 http://www.icelandicfilms.info/person/nr/4923

这部电影是他们第一部独立导演的作品,同时他们兼任编剧/摄像/剪辑。这篇文章里写出了他们和音乐千丝万缕的联系http://blog.gogoyoko.com/interview-with-grandma-lo-fi-director-kristin-bjork-kristjansdottir/

Kristín Björk Kristjánsdóttir (aka Kira Kira), Orri Jónsson (a member of Slowblow) and Ingibjörg Birgisdóttir (who’s made a name for herself directing music videos for the likes of Sin Fang, Sóley, múm and Jónsi)

因为我对冰岛音乐并不了解,在豆瓣上搜了一下发现,这几个团体都挺有知名度的。这篇文章恰好把他们都介绍了http://music.douban.com/review/1429370/#comments

但简历里和这篇文章里http://www.musicfilmweb.com/2012/06/music-documentary-grandma-lo-fi-ingibjorg-birgisdottir/ 也反映了Orri Jónsson还是摄影师)

制片公司:Republik Film Productions(冰岛)

vimeo界面 http://vimeo.com/republik

Republik Film Production was established in 2006 when the director brothers Arni Thor Jonsson and Lalli Jonsson teamed up with executive producer Saemundur Nordfjord. The new partners were off to a fresh new start after spending a number of years with their incubator Saga Film Productions.(摘自官网)

但这两兄弟的主要履历都不是电影,Lalli Jonsson是广告http://www.generatorfilms.tv/lalli-jonsson/ ,Arni Thor Jonsson是mv和广告 http://www.generatorfilms.tv/arni-thor-jonsson/

而这个公司制作的电影也不多

联合制片:Sunn Productions(丹麦)查不到什么信息,冰岛电影中心里它的制作履历也只有这一步电影

影片facebook界面 https://www.facebook.com/Grandmalofi 一直保持更新

内容简介:

70岁时,一位冰岛老太太开始在起居室里录制音乐。7年后,她已经发行了59张专辑。歌里除了她的自弹自唱,还混合了各种有趣的声音。她不仅总是对创作,录音充满了各种创新,还包办自己专辑里所有的艺术设计。现在她成了冰岛独立音乐圈里的cult英雄。本片是对她无穷创造力的致敬。

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.

影评:

这部影片跑了很多电影节,而且也受到了广泛喜爱,并且在音乐而电影两个领域都能得到关注,所以影评其实有很多,我就只贴了一部分。

ArtHub.ie(一个爱尔兰的艺术网站)除了电影也谈了对音乐和年龄的一些看法

Arts Hub(澳大利亚)http://au.artshub.com/au/news-article/reviews/film-tv-radio/grandma-lo-fi-192085

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.

提到了Melbourne Festival,该片是作为其中项目的一部分

Why does Melbourne Festival need a film program? Curator Richard Moore, the former Melbourne International Film Festival director, says the reason is simple: people need to be reminded that, well, ”art matters”.

The company was established in 2006 by Sigurður Gísli Pálmason, a well established and well known entrepreneur in Iceland.

Dreamland是这个公司的第一部主制片作品,之前都是提供联合制片支持。(摘自dreamland官网)

联合制片:

Zik Zak Filmworks(冰岛)http://www.zikzak.is/

The film Nói Albinói by Dagur Kari became an international hit. Its main focus has been the production of feature films, but in recent years the emphasis has also included documentaries and short films with a great deal of success.(综合dreamland官网和公司自己官网)粗体片很有名,豆瓣上有近两千人看过,nordox展映过的电音雷克雅未克也是该公司制片的

官网简介 http://www.dreamland.is/about.html

综合参考:考虑到冰岛的丰厚水力电热资源能提供炼铝所需的电力,美国铝业公司Alcoa投资了冰岛史上最大的项目。冰岛建起了大坝,蓄水池,却对自然造成了巨大破坏。环保人士,经济学家,项目参与者各有看法,谁也不知道冰岛是在走向经济繁荣还是衰退,或是一场生态灾难

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.
