Icelandic horror film I REMEMBER YOU sells around the world

The Icelandic horror film I Remember You has been picked up for distribution around the world thanks to Nordic sales agency TrustNordisk.

Adapted from a novel by Yrsa Sigurđardóttir, I Remember You starts with a woman who hands herself inside a church in the remote Westfjords of Iceland. This leads to an investigation into a number of strange deaths of elderly people in the region. Freyr, the new psychiatrist in town, further finds out, that the deceased woman was obsessed with the disappearance of his 7-year-old son, who disappeared without a trace three years prior. Across the bay in an abandoned village, three city dwellers are restoring a house when supernatural things start occurring. The two stories gradually intertwine and it turns out that a boy who vanished mysteriously some 60 years earlier is the connecting link.

I Remember You is directed by Óskar Thór Axelsson and stars Thor Kristjansson, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, Ágústa Eva Erlendsdóttir, Anna Gunndís Guðmundsdóttir, and Þröstur Leó Gunnarsson.

The film was sold to North America, France, Japan, Latin America and Vietnam during this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

The film has already been sold to the UK, Germany, Turkey and Hungary.
