Featuring macabre stop animation, the secret life of moss, mouse suits,
exploding dictaphones, women who live on clouds, Outkast ballads, and some
very creative uses for whipped cream, Cold Hearts represents the whimsical
Icelandic imagination. 17 artist films and music videos cover expansive
aesthetic ground. Working in locales as diverse as art school in Los Angeles
to the craggy vistas of Skagafjördur in northern Iceland, these young
artists explore their native and adopted worlds in inventive ways.
Intrinsically dark and aloof, yet also refreshingly honest, Cold Hearts is a
glimpse into the curious cultural landscape of Iceland now. From the
fantastical, sometimes disturbing artist films of Unnar Andrea Einarsdottir
to the otherworldly output created by bands such as Mum and Apparat Organ
Quartet, the Icelandic aesthetic is as strange and beautiful as it is

Cold Hearts is traveling thru 2006. See a full list of tour stops here:
