Summerlight... and Then Comes the Night

Sometimes, in small places, life becomes bigger
A profound and playful masterwork that explores the dreams and desires of ordinary people in a rural town and asks questions about life, death and love.
Award-winning Icelandic director Elfar Adalsteins made a drama about a sparsely populated village in Iceland, where all its inhabitants live far from each other. The geographic setup is ideal for this kind of quirky and sweet-natured ensemble about just how different yet similar we human beings are. A story about relationships, sorrows and joys intertwined in the stories of the villagers. Based on the book of the same name by the famous Icelandic author Jón Kalman Stefánsson. „I was born and raised in a small fishing village on the East coast of Iceland so I felt I knew this unique gallery of characters personally. The wonderful story world just came alive in my minds eye and I knew I had to try to get the rights to the novel, so masterfully written by Jón Kalman,“ said film director about the book.
