Gaukur Úlfarsson has established himself as one of Iceland’s most dangerous and outspoken directors over the last decade. He started his carrier in advertisements and music videos, where he among other things did some high profile videos for Columbia Records amongst others. He also directed and produced many TV shows over the years, but his most noted peace of work was the alter ego talk show host 'Silvia Night' which he wrote and directed. The character was a mixture of TV and performance art. The act has been described by many as Iceland’s biggest and sharpest art peace over the last decade. Gaukur has recently done a lot of work for the National TV where he has directed and produced documentaries and news related magazine shows.
