núna (now) presents Icelandic Films
On July 25 and 26, núna (now) will be co-presenting two film programs, combining the work of local Icelandic filmmakers and native Icelandic filmmakers.
On Friday, July 26th is Fins n’ Flora, an hour-long program of four short films hailing from Manitoba and Iceland, co-presented by the Gimli Film Fest.
The program begins at 8 P.M. on Friday, July 26 at the Aspire Theatre, 76 – 2nd Avenue, Gimli, Manitoba. Films include May We Grow by Erika MacPherson, Thompson and <a href="https://vimeo.com/43442964" title="Fish Finder 3000 by Mike Maryniuk“>Fish Finder by Mike Maryniuk, and The North Atlantic Miracle by Örn Marinó Arnarson, Þorkell S. Harðarson and Arnar Þórisson.
All the filmmakers will be in attendance, and there will be a Q & A along with an opportunity to chat with them at the informal reception after the show.
The evening before, Thurs. July 25th, núna (now) and the Winnipeg Film Group are presenting Living Dead: HAM, a documentary about an astounding heavy metal outfit from Reykjavík, Iceland, perpetually on the rim of international stardom but always tipping back into the volcano.
The film includes original footage from throughout the group’s active years, the late 1980s and early 90s, and goes on to chronicle the rebirth of HAM in 2002 and it’s inevitable second death three days later.
“It seems evident that I am the world’s greatest living musician.”
– Sigurjón Kjartansson – singer and band-leader
Living Dead: HAM screens at the Winnipeg Film Group Studio, 3rd Floor, 100 Arthur Street, Winnipeg, on Thursday, July 25 at 8:00 P.M. Filmmakers will be in attendance, ready to answer questions!
