OF HORSES AND MEN
Experience a strange and alluring fable in which beast meets man on a rural Icelandic landscape. A myriad of small-town stories intertwine in a Nordic backwater where humans are streaked with the equine, and horses sport something of the human. First time director Benedikt Erlingsson crafts a unique rumination on the nature of fate. Like a beguiling siren’s call, Of Horses and Men sings with sex, death and stone-black comedic musings on the circle of life. No wonder Iceland is so hot right now. Screened at Sydney and Melbourne Film Festivals.
