Since the album “Hver stund með þér” came out in january I have been working on finishing a documentary film about the project. The film is about my grandfather’s love poems to my grandmother, about the music I wrote to the poems, about love and romance and how it is developing in modern society. We interviewed family members and people that knew my grandparents and got different views on love, romance and marriage from them.
The film “Hver stund með þér” will premiere on a special event on RIFF (Reykjavík International Film Festival) monday 28th september at 15:00 in Gjábakki, Kópavogur in Iceland.
Here is a little preview from the film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzW6R2uInsc&feature=em-upload_owner
