ICEBERG (冰山) is a short narrative film about a young Chinese rock band shot on location in Beijing in July 2012. Featuring a cast comprised almost entirely of musicians from the Beijing and Shanghai rock scene, ICEBERG is a film that engages the ideas and talents of some of China's most outstanding noisemakers.
ICEBERG is a love story about Nova (LITTLE PUNK), a twenty-two year old dummer in one of Beijing's most beloved rock bands. With her bandmates Lei (WANG XU of THE GAR and WHITE+) and Di Yin (ZHOU NAIREN of BIRDSTRIKING and SKIP SKIP BENBEN), Nova has recently been invited to perform at a music festival in the United States--the band's first experience outside of China. Nova's excitement over her band's new adventure propels her from a performance to a wild party, to a tense meeting with her slightly off-kilter father (ROBERT LIN, SCHOOL OF ROCK). Nova moves through the hazy Beijing summer with a secret--she is falling in love and nothing will ever be the same. In keeping with the themes that have come to characterize so much of Chinese Indie rock, ICEBERG is an exploration of love, friendship, music, and the longing, thrills, and contradictions in the lives of young people.
