Just as Icelandic cinema was beginning to emerge onto the world’s screens, new music from Iceland was finding a wide array of international fans and supporters. Shot in the crucial season of 1981-82, Rock in Reykjavik captures the music scene just as it was finding its groove. The film features live performances by Tappi Tíkarrass (featuring a teenaged Björk), Ego, Q4U, Purrkur Pillnikk and other key bands of the era—19 in all—plus interviews with some of the key figures. A great document as exciting today as it was when first released.
