After the mysterious death of a crew member, the taciturn crew of a small Icelandic fishing boat isolates itself from the outside world. But things are bubbling under the painstakingly preserved surface and arguments are becoming more frequent. When a young woman comes on board, the situation begins to escalate... Absolutely gripping, multi-award-winning drama on the high seas with an outstanding cast.

In memory of director Árni Ólafur Ásgeirsson, who died far too early in April 2021 shortly after shooting his new film WOLKA, which we are also screening. With UNDERCURRENT he was in our competition 10 years ago and remains an unforgotten guest of our festival.
