Godland / directed by Hlynur Palmason.

The struggle between the strictures of religion and humankind₂s brute animal nature plays out amid the beautifully forbidding landscapes of remote Iceland in this stunning psychological epic from director Hlynur Pl̀mason. In the late nineteenth century, Danish priest Lucas made the perilous trek to Iceland₂s southeastern coast to establish a church. There, the arrogant man of God finds his resolve tested as he confronts the harsh terrain, temptations of the flesh, and the reality of being an intruder in an unforgiving land. What unfolds is a transfixing journey into the heart of colonial darkness one that₂s attuned to both the majesty and the terrifying power of the natural world.
