Skagafjordur

Iceland (MIFF 2005, experimental)

Director: Peter Hutton

Veteran filmmaker Peter Hutton's latest work is a series of tableaux shot in the landscape of northern Iceland. Extremely simple in structure and breathtakingly beautiful, [Skagafjördur] is an understated gem exploring the nature of observation, composition, silence and illumination.
