As in Heaven

As in Heaven – a film directed by Kristin Johannesdottir.

This feature film is based on Pourquoi pas’ last North Pole expedition which ended in a fatal shipwreck of the west coast of Iceland in1936, with a parallel 13 th century fictional plot. For me this work was like a continuous string of site specific installations inspired by facts of the story as well as the extraordinary landscape and history of the sites.   With a 13 th Century mansion inspired by the Norwegian “staf” church as well as its mountainous backdrop and scenes demonstrating working methods and sacred rituals. With the 1930’s farm in its barren surrounds as if drained of all juices and scenes from on-board the 3 mastered squared rigger and the shipwreck, debris and corps washing ashore.
