Say Hello To Ragnar Bragason's METALHEAD With First Images
One of the brightest lights in the Icelandic film scene, Ragnar Bragason - director of Children and Parents - is now deep into post production on his latest feature Metalhead.Known for his ability to balance drama with humor, Bragason here works with actors Þorbjörg Helga Dýrfjörð (Baltasar Kormakur's The Deep), Ingvar E. Sigurðsson (Jar City) and Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir (Polite People) to tell a tale Bragason describes as being about "a girl, heavy metal and cows. Metalhead is a dramatic film, both tender and grim with moments of rebellious comedy. It's a story of a terrible loss and how we deal with our griefs, about community and a sense of family, dreams and nightmares."
