Synopsis: Set in the 18th century, Sóley focuses on a young farmer’s resistance to Danish colonial oppression with the help of supernatural forces, including titular elf-maiden Sóley.

About: "SOLEY: The Hidden People of the Shadowy Rocks" is the only feature film by Icelandic avant-garde artist Róska (Ragnhildur Óskarsdóttir, 1940–1996), made in collaboration with her husband Manrico Pavolettoni.

Educated in Prague and Rome, Róska was known for her radical leftist political views which are often evident in her art. A founder of the The Living Art Museum in Reykjavík and a member of diverse artist collective SÚM, Róska made waves in a male-dominated field, and indeed, the situation of women was a primary theme of her work.
