The debut feature-length experimental documentary from filmmakers Andrea Sisson and Pete Ohs produced with the support of the U.S. FULBRIGHT FOUNDATION (with Sisson as a fellow). Shot in Iceland from 2010-2011, the documentary blends fiction and non-fiction to tell the story of a young woman whose encounter with the intense natural beauty of Iceland inspires her to examine her comfortable notions of sanity and creativity. An experimental poetic documentary and battle to understand the world and how it treats people, more specifically, how mental illness is dealt with. It’s about perspectives, and ultimately how the most important thing in dealing with an issue is perhaps one's perspective on that issue. Underneath it all, the film is perhaps a story of a sister's own confrontation with schizophrenia and serious mental illness.
