ABOUT THE FILM: How much unspoiled nature should we preserve and what do we sacrifice for clean, renewable energy? Dreamland gradually turns into a disturbing picture of corporate power taking over small communities. Dreamland is a film about a nation standing at cross-roads. Leading up to the country’s greatest economic crisis, the government started the largest mega project in the history of Iceland. Today Iceland is left holding a huge dept and an uncertain future. [Þorfinnur Guðnason & Andri Snær Magnason / Iceland / 2009 / 89 min]
STUDY IN ACTION: This film is presented in anticipation of the upcoming “Study In Action” conference to take place at Concordia University later in March (more info HERE). Last year’s Study in Action opening panel was entitled: “Other Inconvenient Truths: Beyond Sustainability and Towards Environmental Justice” while this year our panel explores “Capitalism, Austerity and Political Repression.” We present this special screening of DREAMLAND to link our two panels, and to continue the discussions, debate and action around responding to the ecological crisis and the crisis of capitalism, getting beyond the limiting and flawed discourses about “sustainability.”
Part of QPIRG Concordia’s Monthly KEEPING IT REEL Subversive Cinema Series.
Co-presented with Study in Action & Cinema Politica.
