VISITING ARTIST—Blueberry soup, an Icelandic comfort food, is an apt metaphor for this insightful documentary that explores the unique and devastating situation of a country gone bankrupt. In the aftermath of the 2008 economic collapse in Iceland, the Nordic island country undertook the revolutionary task of rewriting their constitution. With a lens on the impacts the process has on the cultural landscape, Jerrett’s film interweaves interviews with a local fisherman, members of the constitutional council, Icelandic music stars, and journalists, displaying a proud nation whose people have endured turbulent times and are curious about their future.
