A SPECIAL SCREENING TO CLOSE THE CURRENT ART SHOW "SVO LANGT EN SO CLOSE" AT THE MANTIS GALLERY!
A DIY backyard concert turns into one of the most exciting and intimate music events of the year. With some of the most celebrated bands coming out of Reykjavík right now, including Múm, FM Belfast, Hjaltalín and Sin Fang Bous.
A guy named Árni Rúnar had the idea of gathering a few bands together in his backyard to do some live recording. His idea evolved into this film. He filled his little shack of a studio with equipment and prayed for good weather. He invited all of his neighbours and made them pizza, cupcakes and pancakes. And then many of the most exciting Icelandic musicians of their generation showed up to play, giving us a unique look at the diverse music scene of Reykjavík in the summer of 2009.
