Whale Valley

Iceland/Denmark, 2013, Colour, 15 min

Set on an isolated farm in Iceland, Whale Valley follows a seven-year-old boy who accidentally interrupts his older brother’s suicide attempt. His brother makes him promise not to tell their parents, and the film examines the relationship between the two brothers in the aftermath using images of rugged scenery to express the young boys’ inner turmoil and feelings of isolation.
