Independent Film Screening Reykjavik

Why: We are seeking critical feedback from the audience about the production and want to share our work with the public. The film is in application phase for the NYC Tribeca Film Festival among other US film festivals. We incorporate public feedback from showings to improve the film, and also we want to share it with the public to create discussion about independent filmmaking. Popcorn and coffee will be served. Audience members will be offered an opinion survey, which is optional and not required.

Synopsis: Two Norwegian cousins come to NYC for a reunion, which takes a back seat as NYC landmarks, art studios, attractive men and city streets provide a compelling setting for a woman?s struggle to gain mastery of her internal voice.
