The County

29/09/19, 19:45, DANAOS 1

In a small farming community of Iceland, a stubborn dairy farmer becomes the black sheep when she rebels against the corrupt and powerful local co-op. Iceland’s answer to “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” is an amusing revolt by a feisty female  brought to us by the director who caused a sensation four years ago with the award-winning “Rams”.


ICELAND, DENMARK, FRANCE, | 2019 | COLOR | DCP | 90' | ICELAND

A middle-aged farmer from Iceland, who’s lost her husband is in conflict with a corrupt farming cooperation that profits from the land.

From the creator of the impressive ‘Rams’, a tribute to emancipation, not only as to gender but as to standing up against those who exploit you. What makes the film stand out is the Scandinavian atmosphere of the ‘Icelandic miracle’ which fills the film with this unique light mixture of comedy and drama. Ι.D.
