Kyja Kristjansson-Nelson: Landscapes

Visiting Filmmakers

Today’s most engaging and inventive directors, producers, and film professionals join us to introduce their work and answer questions after most screenings.

Wed, Feb 29, 2012 7 PM

For more than ten years, Minnesota-based filmmaker Kyja Kristjansson-Nelson has created a singular body of work combining experimental approaches to documentary, animation, and portraiture. Tonight she introduces selections of her work.

The program features two films inspired by her ancestral homeland of Iceland. Sveit (2009) examines the mythology of her family’s emigration to North Dakota while contrasting it with the realities of present-day Iceland. Landslag (2004) is a rumination on the natural forces that shaped the area in northern Iceland where her great-grandparents emigrated from. (program app. 60 mins., video)
