Að baki Stockfish standa fagfélög kvikmyndagerðarfólks á Íslandi og er hátíðin því um leið einskonar fagmessa íslenskrar kvikmyndagerðar. Auk þess að bjóða upp á gott og vandað úrval kvikmynda stendur Stockfish fyrir fjölda spennandi viðburða og heimsóknum erlendra kvikmyndagerðarmanna úr fremstu röð. Stjórn Stockfish er efst í huga þakklæti til allra sem unnið hafa að undirbúningi hátíðarinnar og gert hana að veruleika og einnig til þeirra aðila sem með stuðningi sínum hafa gert okkur kleift bjóða upp á þessa einstöku hátíð.

Velkomin á fimmtu Stockfish hátíðina! Welcome to the 5th Stockfish festival!

Stockfish is held in collaboration with all the film-industry guilds in Iceland and is therefore Iceland´s film industry convention of sorts. Besides offering a wide and fine selection of films, Stockfish hosts an array of exciting events and visits from some of the world´s best filmmakers. The board of Stockfish truly appreciates the thought and work put into the festival to make it what it is, and to those who have gracefully sponsored it and made it possible for us to offer you to this unique festival. Ari Alexander Ergis Magnússon

Sjaldan hef ég verið jafn spennt fyrir dagskrá Stockfish eins og nú! Að venju er boðið upp á fjölda bransaviðburða og margverðlaunaðar kvikmyndaperlur þar sem enginn mun ganga vonsvikinn úr salnum hér í Bíó Paradís. Það er von okkar sem höfum unnið að hátíðinni að hún fylli þig af innblæstri, næri sál þína og skilji eftir ógleymanlegar upplifanir. I am extremely proud of this year’s Stockfish program. As usual we offer a variety of industry events and a program where no one will walk out of Bíó Paradís disappointed. It is our sincere hope that attending the festival leaves you with inspiring experiences and heartfelt memories. Marzibil S.

tæpu ári og er þess fullviss að það muni skipta sköpum fyrir kvikmyndagerð á Íslandi. Ég vil fyrir hönd borgarinnar óska Stockfish kvikmyndahátíðinni til hamingju með þessa metnaðarfullu dagskrá. Til hamingju með fimm ára afmælið, og ég hvet alla til að mæta í Bíó Paradís!

Stockfish 2019 Í ár fögnum við fimm ára afmæli Stockfish kvikmyndahátíðarinnar sem hefur á þessum stutta tíma fest sig í sessi sem fastur menningarviðburður jafnt hjá fagaðilum og kvikmyndaáhugafólki. Það eru fjölmargir sem bíða í ofvæni eftir þessari ellefu daga kvikmyndaveislu í Reykjavík, en hátíðin stendur nú yfir frá 28. febrúar-10. mars. Bryddað er upp á ýmsum nýjungum í tilefni afmælisins og má þar nefna Hreyfimyndahátíð fyrir listrænar stutt- og heimildarmyndir ásamt video innsetningum. Yfir 20 sérvaldar alþjóðlegar verðlaunamyndir eru á dagskránni og ný íslensk mynd, Taka 5 eftir Magnús Jónsson, verður frumsýnd. Frá upphafi hefur markmið hátíðarinnar verið að efla kvikmyndamenningu á Íslandi árið um kring og vera íslenskum kvikmyndaiðnaði lyftistöng. Boðið er upp á fyrirlestra og vinnustofur samhliða kvikmyndasýningunum til að styrkja tengslin milli innlendra og alþjóðlegra kvikmyndagerðarmanna og kvikmyndaáhugamanna, og verða um 20 erlendir gestir á hátíðinni. Gróskan í kvikmyndagerð hér á landi hefur aldrei verið meiri, og íslenskt kvikmyndagerðarfólk hefur á liðnum árum hlotið fjölmargar viðurkenningar fyrir verk sín á alþjóðlegum vettvangi. Ég er mjög stoltur af því að Reykjavíkurborg hafði frumkvæði að uppbyggingu kvikmyndavers í Gufunesi sem opnaði fyrir

This year, we celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Stockfish Film Festival in Reykjavík. During this relatively short time, the festival has earned its reputation within the Reykjavik cultural scene, and people working in the film industry and film-enthusiasts alike wait anxiously each year for this eleven days of film-feast to begin. The festival takes place during February 28th–10th of March. Around twenty of the most up-and-coming art-house films in the world will be screened through this time, and there will be a world premiere of a new Icelandic film by Magnús Jónsson. The programme also includes for the first time the PHYSICAL CINEMA FESTIVAL – a podium for short films, documentaries and video installations. The festival has aimed from the beginning to create a platform in Reykjavík to encourage collaboration between domestic and international film communities. This is done by offering a great number of panels and seminars throughout the festival aiming to educate and inspire as well as to create a strong connection between filmmakers and film lovers from home and abroad. The Icelandic film industry is now experiencing unprecedented growth and success, as Icelandic films have received international recognition throughout the world. I am extremely proud that a fully equipped film studio opened here last year, with the support of the City of Reykjavík, which finally allows bigger film projects to be fully recorded and completed in Iceland. On behalf of the City of Reykjavík, I want to thank the organizers of the Stockfish Film Festival for offering this ambitious programme – and happy anniversary! Dagur B. Eggertsson Borgarstjóri / Mayor

Njótum evrópskrar menningar! Enjoy European culture! Við hjá sendinefnd Evrópusambandsins erum að venju stolt og kát yfir því að styðja við bakið á Stockfish, sem er með réttu orðinn stór árlegur fasti í íslensku menningarlífi. Það gleður okkur innilega að taka þátt í því að flytja inn fyrsta flokks kvikmyndir frá meginlandi Evrópu til Íslands. Í ár, sem fyrri ár, eru evrópskar myndir stór hluti af myndunum á hátíðinni. Evrópusambandið samanstendur af 28 löndum frá Kýpur í austri til Portúgals í vestri, frá Finnlandi í norðri og til Möltu í suðri. Þetta eru samtals 4,5 milljón ferkílómetrar og yfir hálfur milljarður manna. Við tölum mörg tungumál og búum að ríkulegum og fjölbreyttum menningararfi. Þetta er ef til vill ein skýring á því hvers vegna lista- og menningarstarf Evrópu hefur verið jafn frjósamt og raun ber vitni. Við erum réttilega stolt af auðugri kvikmyndagerðarhefð Evrópu. Og Evrópusambandið skilur mikilvægi þess, að styðja við hágæða kvikmyndaframleiðslu. Þessar góðu myndir leiða gjarnan í ljós hina ótrúlegu fjölbreytni þjóða Evrópu. En þær sýna einnig hve mikið við eigum sameiginlegt og hvað það er sem sameinar okkur: gagnkvæm virðing, samstaða, trúin á frelsið. Við erum stolt af okkar sérkennum en berum virðingu fyrir sérkennum nágranna okkar.

Þess vegna valdi ESB „sameinuð í fjölbreytileika“ sem einkunnarorð sín. Góðar myndir endurspegla oft þessi gildi og þess vegna leggur ESB svona mikla áherslu á að styrkja kvikmyndaiðnaðinn í gegnum MEDIA áætlunina, sem er hluti af Creative Europe sjóðnum. Íslenskur kvikmyndaiðnaður er þessum sjóðum vel kunnugur þar sem hann hefur fengið þaðan ótal styrki í sjónvarpsþætti svo sem Fanga og Ófærð. Kvikmyndir eins og Fúsi, Hrútar, Hjartasteinn og Svanurinn hafa einnig notið góðs af styrkjum úr þessum sjóðum. Í nóvember síðastliðnum hlaut kvikmyndin Kona fer í stríð, enn einn íslenski MEDIA styrkþeginn, hin mikils metnu LUX kvikmyndaverðlaun Evrópusambandsins. Þá má geta þess að við höfum styrkt bæði Bíó Paradís og RIFF kvikmyndahátíðina í gegnum árin. Það er gott að vita að fyrirtaks samvinna okkar í þessum geira komi til með að styrkjast enn á komandi árum. Njótið hátíðarinnar! The Delegation of the European Union to Iceland is delighted and proud to once again support the Stockfish Film Festival, which is rightfully a major fixture in the Icelandic cultural scene. We are truly happy to be able to play our part in bringing high quality films from the European continent to Iceland. This year, as before, a large share of the films at Stockfish was made in Europe. The EU covers 28 countries from Cyprus in the East to Portugal in the West and Finland in the North to Malta in the South. It occupies an area of 4.5 million square kilometres and has a population of more than half a billion people. We speak many languages and have very diverse traditions. That is perhaps why Europe is such a unique breeding ground for artistic and cultural creativity. We are justifiably proud of our rich film-making heritage. And the European Union understands the importance of supporting quality film-making. These good films often portray the amazing diversity of European nations, but also underscore how much we have in common and what unites us: respect for one another; solidarity; a belief in freedom. We are proud of our special traits, but respect those of our neighbours. That is why the EU chose ‘United in Diversity’ as its motto. These values are often reflected in good films and that is why the EU puts such emphasis on


strengthening the film industry through the MEDIA programme, which is a part of the Creative Europe fund. The Icelandic film industry is well aware of these EU funds, since it has received grants for TV shows like Prisoners and Trapped, for films like Virgin Mountain, Rams, Heartstone and the Swan. In November, another MEDIA fund recipient, Woman at War, won the prestigious EU Lux film prize. We have also supported Bíó Paradís as well as the RIFF film festival. It is nice to know that the excellent cooperation we enjoy in this field will grow stronger still in the years to come. Enjoy the festival!

Sascha, ung og falleg kona uppgötvar að draumalífinu fylgir fórnarkostnaður þegar hún er boðin velkomin í „fjölskyldu“ kærasta síns, eiturlyfja barónsins í sjávarþrorpi á Tyrknesku rivíerunni. Á Sasha möguleika á því að yfirgefa þetta mótsagnakennda líf alsnægta og ofbeldis?

Hin 15 ára Lara er ákveðin í að verða atvinnu balletdansari. Með stuðningi föður síns eltir hún þann draum í nýjum skóla. Vandamál gelgjuskeiðsins eru þó ekki langt undan með tilheyrandi óþolinmæði og lífræðilegum áskorunum þar sem hún fæddist sem drengur.

Young and beautiful Sascha discovers her dream life of recklessness and fun comes at a price when she is welcomed into the “family” of her drug lord boyfriend at his holiday villa in the port city of Bodrum on the Turkish riviera. Is it possible that she could still leave this life of luxury and violence behind?

Determined 15 year old Lara is committed to becoming a professional ballerina. With the support of her father, she throws herself into this quest for the absolute at a new school. Lara’s adolescent frustrations and impatiance are heightened as she realizes her body does not bend so easily to the strict discipline because she was born a boy.

Vinirnir Salvatore og Felice eru báðir á flótta frá litlu þorpi í Puglía, Ítalíu. Þeir ferðast um Evrópu og enda síðan í Hollandi og síðar á Íslandi. Í ævintýralegu ferðalagi þeirra fylgjumst við með ýmsum uppákomum og sjáum þá læra að komast yfir eigin ótta og takmarkanir.

Stórbrotin teiknuð hasarrmynd sem byggð er á borgararstríðinu í Angóla árið 1975. Blaðamanninum Kapuscinski er fylgt eftir þar sem hann er staddur í framlínu stríðsins og skrifar um ástandið. Kapuscinski er þjakaður af innri togstreitu um störf blaðamannsins og áhrif stríðsins á fólkið sem hann hittir.

The exhilarating journey through Europe of two naive friends, Salvatore and Felice, both running from a little village in Puglia, who find themselves catapulted to the Netherlands and then to Iceland. Through some misadventures and with the precious help of Anke (Gerritsen), an extravagant woman, they will overcome their fears and inhibitions.

A visually striking and animated action film based on real life events of the civil war in 1975 Angola. The audience follows Kapuscinski, a journalist in the front lines of the war and his internal struggle while he watches the effects the war has on the people he meets.

Zama, spænskur liðsforingi á nýlendutímum í Suður-Ameríku, bíður eftir að vera fluttur á nýjar, virðulegri slóðir. Sífelldar niðurlægingar og pólitískir leikir grafa undan geðheilsu hans og leiða hann til ofsóknaræðis og lostafullrar hneigðar.

Sendillinn Jongsu rekst á Haemi, kunningja sinn úr æsku. Hún biður hann um að huga að kettinum sínum á meðan hún fer í ferðalag til Afríku. Þegar hún snýr aftur kynnir hún Jongsu fyrir dularfullum ungum manni, Ben, sem hún kynntist á ferðalaginu.

In a remote South American colony in the late 18th century, officer Zama of the Spanish crown waits in vain for a transfer to a more prestigious location. He suffers small humiliations and petty politicking as he increasingly succumbs to lust and paranoia.

Deliveryman Jongsu runs into Haemi, a girl who once lived in his neighborhood. She asks if he’d mind looking after her cat while she’s away on a trip to Africa. On her return she introduces to Jongsu an enigmatic young man named Ben, who she met during her trip.

The Great Buddha

El Angel

08.03 kl 20:00/Q&A

02.03 kl 20:00, 04.03 kl 17:30, 06.03 kl 22:15

Pickle og Belly Button eru bestu vinir og starfa báðir við illa launuð störf í bronsstyttuverksmiðju í Suður-Taívan. Þeim félögum leiðist eitt kvöldið og ákveða að kíkja á myndefni á öryggismyndavél yfirmanns síns. Þeir uppgötva leyndarmál og í framhaldinu fer af stað fáránleg atburðarás og Buddha stytta úr verksmiðjunni flækist inn í.

Byggt á sönnum atburðum, El Angel veitir innsýn inn í árið sem raðmorðinginn Carlitos, ungur og myndarlegur maður, framdi ótal glæpi og hrottaleg morð. Myndin gerist í Buenos Aires á sjöunda áratugnum og hefur vakið sérstaka athygli fyrir vel heppnaða leikmynd og tónlist sem veitir myndinni hressandi stemningu þrátt fyrir hryllingslegt innihald. Myndin var tilnefnd til ótal verðlauna og verið sýnd á mörgun virtum hátíðum, þ.m.t. Cannes.

Best friends Pickle and Belly Button work low-income menial jobs in a bronze statue factory in Southern Taiwan. Feeling unfulfilled and bored one night they peek into their boss’ dash cam footage and accidently discover his unspeakable secret. As a result, a ridiculous chain reaction is triggered, and even the statue of Buddha, ready to be sent to a religious festival, is forced to play a role in this chaotic situation.

A teenager embarks on a murderous crime spree with a friend he hopes to impress. It is inspired by the true story of an Argentine serial killer in the 1970s. The movie has garnered attention for its stylistic sets and up-beat music that gives a happy-go-lucky vibe to such horror filled content.

The celebrated Taiwanese director Hsin-Yao Huang will join us for a special screening and Q&A session of his first fiction feature film The Great Buddha +. A film that has won numerous awards in its home country and has been screened at many notable film festivals including Toronto International Film Festival.

Maj Doris

Angel of the North

01.03 kl 18:30, 05.03 kl 18:00, 10.03 kl 20:00

02.03 kl 22:15, 07.03 kl 17:30/Q&A, 09.03 kl 17:30/Q&A

Við fyrstu sýn fjallar myndin um sérvitra gamla konu sem vinnur fyrir sér sem hreindýrahirðir. Smám saman verður okkur ljóst að þarna fylgjumst við Samísku fjöllistakonunni Maj Doris, djúpvitri og heillandi goðsögn í lifanda lífi. Maj hefur ferðast um gjörvallan heiminn til að kynna menningararf þjóðar sinnar en leyfir okkur hér að skyggnast undir yfirborðið og kynnast því flækjum þess að vera sterk listræn kona, fyrirmynd og baráttukona fyrir varðveislu frumbyggjamenningar.

Eitt mest dáða málverk Finna er ber heitið Særði Engillinn, sem sýnir tvö börn bera engil á milli sín á börum. Verkið er sveipað dulúð þar sem höfundur verksins fékkst aldrei til að útskýra boðskap þess. Myndin leitast eftir því að skilja áhrif verksins í öllum hornum Finnlands með því að velta upp spurningum um mannsálina, dauðann og tilveru engla. Depurð, von, húmanismi og norrænum Shamanisma er hér hrært saman í tilraun til að leysa gátuna á bakvið Særða Engilinn.

In this beautifully composed documentary, we first see an eccentric old woman taking care of a herd of reindeer in the northern part of Sweden. Gradually, it becomes clear that this wise and highly charismatic person is Sami actress and artist Maj Doris, a folk legend who has traveled all over the world to promote the cultural legacy of her people. It’s a contemplative and multifaceted film that explores topics such as the preservation of indigenous cultures, strong artistic women and the complexities of being a role model.

A 1903 Finnish painting shows two children carrying an angel on a stretcher. This image is an enigma because its author has never explained it. Today, The Wounded Angel is the Finnish population’s favourite painting. To understand the image’s power of fascination, the film investigates all round the country. It questions the mysteries of the human soul, of death and the existence of angels. Melancholy, hope, humanism and nordic shamanism come together to resolve the enigma of The Wounded Angel.

The Raft

Landvernd kynnir Anthropocene: The Human Epoch

02.03 kl 18:00, 06.03 kl 20:15

Árið 1973 ráku fimm karlar og sex konur yfir Atlantshafið á fleka sem var hluti af vísindalegri tilraunarannsókn þar sem rannsaka átti félagsfræðina á bak við ofbeldi, árásargirni og kynferðislegt aðdráttarafl. Þessi kvikmynd er sagan á bak við þetta óvenjulega ferðalag. In 1973, five men and six women drifted across the Atlantic on a raft as part of a scientific experiment studying the sociology of violence, aggression and sexual attraction in human behavior. The film tells the hidden story behind what has been described as ‘one of the strangest group experiments of all time.’

Stúdíó 54 næturklúbburinn var skjálftamiðja hedonisma á sjöunda áratugnum. 39 árum eftir að rauða teppinu var fyrst kastað yfir heilagan þröskuldinn fáum við að sjá raunverulegu söguna á bak við frægasta næturklúbb allra tíma! Studio 54 was the epicenter of 70´s hedonism – a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolize an entire era. 39 years after the velvet rope was first slung across the club’s hallowed threshold, we get to see the real story behind the greatest club of all time!

04.03 kl 20:00

Anthropocene: The Human Epoch er þriðja myndin í heimildamyndaröð um hóp alþjóðlegra vísindamanna sem eftir 10 ára rannsóknavinnu halda því fram að nýtt jarðfræðilegt skeið sé runnið upp: Mannlífstíminn. Anthropocene sameinar list og vísindi til að bera vitni um eitt mikilvægasta og skelfilegasta tímabil í jarðsögunni. Myndin hefur verið sýnd á kvikmyndahátíðum TIFF og Sundance og er sýnd á Stockfish í samvinnu við Landvernd Umhverfisverndarsamtök sem fagna í ár 50 ára afmæli sínu. Nánar er hægt að kynna sér verkefnið á theanthropocene.org A cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering of the planet, Anthropocene is a feature documentary film from the multipleaward winning team of Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier, and Edward Burtynsky. Third in a trilogy that includes Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013), the film follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group who, after nearly 10 years of research, are arguing that the evidence shows the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century, as a result of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth. At the intersection of art and science, Anthropocene witnesses, in an experiential and non-didactic sense, a critical moment in geological history — bringing a provocative and unforgettable experience of our species’ breadth and impact.

Physical Cinema Festival Physical Cinema Festival is a platform for short films, documentaries and video installations. The selected works are bordering on physical performance, visual arts, sound and cinema. The films and installations in the program are innovative and refreshing in their approach. Some films have challenging storylines, some are abstract, other installations deconstruct or render a poetic experience of space. Innovative and experimental kinetic use of the body and camera play an extremely important part in the process of creation. Concepts and ideas represented in the works are mutual and communicate in a nonlinear way. They all have in common to move and thrill us inside out
