13 to 24 September

Toronto, ON: Exhibit: FIVE, works by Rey Saem. Reception Sept. 14, 6:30pm. Gallery 1313, 1313 Queen St. West. Main Gallery.

www.g1313.orgGallery Hours Wed- Sun. 1-6 pm.

Iceland is a country of myth and story, of sharp contrasts of colour and light.  All of this is reflected in the art of Rey Saem, a recent immigrant to the Bloor West Village  area of Toronto. 

This architect turned painter´s first show is titled ´Five´, a reference to the age at which he decided to move to the moon, in order to escape the people he had begun to see in his home, who were ´gone´ (no longer in the land of the living).  He built himself a ´kassabíla´(wooden car) for the journey, which he has now recreated as part of his show at Gallery 1313, which opens September 13. 

His large canvases show his fascination with the moon and stars in whimsical fashion by making use of strong colour to blend canvas, glue and other elements.   Others include Iceland’s waterfalls and elements of his new country featuring such subjects as Manitoba buffalo, and the films of Humphrey Bogart and David Lynch. 

 

4 November to 2 April

Icelandic films at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF)

Icelandic films at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) September 7 - 17

 

The coming edition of the Toronto International Film Festival is shaping up to be a big one for Icelandic films. Three films – Ása Helga Hjörleifsdóttir’s The Swan, Haftsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson’s Under the Tree, and Hlynur Pálmason’s Winter Brothers – will screen at the festival, and the Icelandic actor Sverrir Gudnason plays the lead in the Swedish biopic Borg/McEnroe, which will be the opening film at this year’s festival.

CHECK THE TIFF WEBSITE FOR FULL SCHEDULE AND MOVIE LISTINGS http://www.tiff.net

 

The Swan / Svanurinn – Discovery (world premiere)

Director: Ása Helga Hjörleifsdóttir (Iceland)

http://www.tiff.net/tiff/the-swan/

Showtimes: Sept. 9, 10, 12, 13 & 17

 

 

 

The Swan, writer/director Ása Helga Hjörleifsdóttir’s debut feature, will have its world premiere in TIFF’s competitive Discovery section. The film tells the story of a wayward nine-year-old girl who is sent to the countryside one summer to help out on a farm and mature. She soon finds herself deeply entangled in a drama she can hardly grasp. The Swan was written and directed by Hjörleifsdóttir, produced by Birgitta Björnsdóttir and Hlín Jóhannesdóttir for Vintage Pictures, and coproduced by Germany’s Junafilm and Estonia’s Kopli Kinokompanii.

 

 

Under the Tree / Undir Trénu – Contemporary World Cinema

Director: Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson (Iceland)

http://www.tiff.net/tiff/under-the-tree/

Showtimes: Sept. 10, 11 & 13

 

 

Under the Tree, writer/director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson’s third feature, which just had its world premiere in the Venice Film Festival’s Orizzonti, will screen in TIFF’s Contemporary World Cinema section. The film is about a conflict that develops between neighbours over a large, beautiful tree that straddles their backyards. As the conflict intensifies, so do the stakes for each of the neighbours. Under the Tree was directed by Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson and written by Sigurdsson and Huldar Breidfjörd. It was produced by Grímar Jónsson, Sindri Páll Kjartansson and Thor Sigurjonsson for Netop Films and co-produced by Poland’s Madants, Denmark’s Profile Pictures, and Germany’s One Two Films. 

 

Winter Brothers  – Discovery (world premiere)

Director: Hlynur Pálmason (Iceland)

http://www.tiff.net/tiff/winter-brothers/

Showtimes: Sept. 9, 11, & 13

 

 

Winter Brothers premiered at the Locarno Film Festival in early August. Like The Swan, it will screen in TIFF’s Discovery section. The film is a brother odyssey set in a worker’s environment during a cold winter. It concerns two brothers – their routines, habits, and rituals – and a violent feud that erupts between them and another family. Winter Brothers, a Danish/Icelandic co-production, was written and directed by Hlynur Pálmason. It was produced by Denmark’s Masterplan Pictures and coproduced by Anton Máni Svansson for the Icelandic company Join Motion Pictures. 

 

 

Sverrir Gudnason stars in TIFF 2017 opening film BORG/MCENROE

 

 

 

The Icelandic actor Sverrir Gudnason plays the role of Björn Borg, up against Shia LaBeouf’s John McEnroe, in the Swedish biopic Borg/McEnroe, TIFF’s opening film. Gudnason, who is based in Sweden, has won many awards in recent years for his roles in the films Original, Monica Z, and Blowfly Park.
