Date/Time and Place of Event
Originally produced by Synergetic Distribution in 2017.
In contemporary rural Iceland, a wayward 9-year old girl, Sól, is sent to distant countryside relatives for a summer to work and to mature. Nature seems endless there, the animals soulful but the people harsh. All except the mysterious farmhand Jón, who – as Sól herself – likes words better than people. But the farmers’ daughter Ásta has a claim on Jón as well, and soon Sól becomes entangled in a drama she hardly can grasp. This summer marks Sól’s rite of passage into the murky waters of adulthood, and the wild nature in us all. Official Selection at the **Toronto International Film Festival**. *“THE SWAN is a coming-of-age drama that’s as beautiful and brutal as the remote, rural landscape of northern Iceland where it takes place." - Christy Lemire, *****
