Country:Denmark, Iceland
In the late 19th century, a young Danish priest travels to a remote part of Iceland to build a church and photograph its people. But the deeper he goes into the unforgiving landscape, the more he strays from his purpose, the mission and morality.

Visually stunning, Godland makes for a marvellous cinematic opener for Keswick Film Festival.

Thanks to Curzon Films


“With a pair of fine lead performances and some beautiful cinematography, Hylnur Pálmason has created a film that is as beautiful as it is intelligent. Don’t miss it. ”

“An engrossing account of a voyage to the dark side of permanent daylight.”
