VOLCANO at 23rd PSIFF

user
VOLCANO (ELDFJALL, Iceland, 2011), Iceland's official Oscar entry for 2012 screened this week at the 23rd Palm Springs International Film Festival.  Few films can boast such raw and gritty realism as VOLCANO (ELDFJALL, Iceland, 2011). While the film is set in its native Iceland, it is a far cry from the expansive Nordic Eden we have been exposed to after Eastwood's FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS (2006) and TOMB RAIDER (2001), with VOLCANO exposing the more tangible truth of everyday life in ...
