About the film:
We meet a young, troubled man, Gulli, as he confides in a journalist about his shady life, where substance abuse plays the lead part. Throughout the film he tells us about his questionable circle. Who is on top of the pyramid, who are the middle managers and who they pray upon to get their way. Gulli tells the journalist about one fateful night when his dear friend Stína, who has been sober for some time drove him to a remote party so that Gulli could clear his debt with one of his drug dealers. At this party we witness sexual abuse, manipulation and heavy drug abuse. When things are not going the way his dealers want, the night unfolds in a devastating way, a way no one could have expected.

Kría

Director: Dögg Móses

About film:
A super 8mm road movie that takes place in Wild West of Iceland. A draculesque gypsy, driving a Russian van, picks up a teenage girl called Kria hitch hiking in the lava fields. They have nothing in common except their need for a place to call home. Kria is the femme fatal of the migratory bird, beautiful but strikes with violence if threatened. First impressions are often deceiving
