KEEP FROZEN selected for Visions du Réel

Icelandic documentary Keep Frozen has been selected for the Visions du Réel documentary film festival. The doco, which is directed by Hulda Ros Gudnadottir, will also have its world premiere there.

Keep Frozen tells the story of the factory workers who unload frozen fish that enters the Reykjavik harbour. Unloading this is nothing less than a ritual – it takes a lot of planning, teamwork, and a unique set of skills. In this film we see what it takes to do the job.

The Visions du Réel documentary film festival takes place between the 15th and 23rd of April in Nyon, Switzerland.


Keep Frozen was directed by Hulda Rós Gudnadóttir and written by Gudnadóttir, Helga Rakel Rafnsdóttir and Hinrik Thór Svavarsson. It was produced by Helga Rakel Rafnsdóttir for Skarkali and coproduced by Thorvardur Björgúlfsson for Kukl. It was edited by Kristján Lodmfjörd and the music was composed by Joseph Marzello and Prins Póló. International sales and distribution will be handled by Deckert Distribution.
