Iceland, Christmas time.

As everyone prepares for the holidays, a peculiar atmosphere falls upon the country revealing emotions of both excitement and concern. In the middle of the countryside, an abandoned farm is burning. In a school, a children’s choir is singing Christmas carols. In a slaughterhouse, chickens are parading along a rail. In a museum, a mother is arguing with her ex-husband on the phone. In a living room, a young girl is making her grandmother try on her new virtual reality headset...

Through 56 scenes, “Echo” draws a portrait, both biting and tender, of modern society.

The latest film from the director who’s debut feature “Volcano” opened PÖFF in 2011.

Director: Rúnar Rúnarsson
