Metalhead: Icelandic Film About Death, Metal and Farming Accidents

June 12, 2014 | Marina Galperina

“They say time heals all wounds. That’s utter bullshit.” So begins the trailer for Ragnar Bragason’s new film Metalhead. After her brother dies in a tragic farming accident, Hera Karlsdottir grieves by finding solace in his heavy metal records and her new dreams of becoming a rockstar. See her practice gloomily in a farmhouse, burn shit and try, try, try to escape the dead town. “God can also be found in the dark.” Metalhead screens at London’s East End Film Festival starting this Friday.
