Reykjavik Rising + director Q&A
“In October 2008 Iceland was hit with one of the biggest financial disasters any nation in the world had experienced. In response, citizens took to the streets creating what is now known as the “Pots and Pans Revolution”.
Filmed in Reykjavik between 2012 and 2014, the documentary meets the instigators of the revolution and follows the most important National Referendum in Iceland’s history. Giving the Icelandic people the opportunity to decide whether to support a constitution that had been created through a popular grassroots movement. Through this we explore the Icelanders’ story of their nation and their revolution but also what lessons can be learned globally from their experiences.”
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s director, Danny Mitchell.
