It is quite an extraordinary tale, how the Icelandic football team made it all the way to the 2016 UEFA European Championship. Even more strikingly, Iceland’s team is doing very well there, securing a historic 1-1 draw against heavily favored Portugal on Tuesday. This beautiful documentary, ‘Jökullinn logar (“Glaciers On Fire”) captures the entire journey of the the team and its incredible drive and spirit. The movie is in Icelandic and there are no subtitles, but the visually dynamic story comes through in style. The film’s running time is 95 minutes—about the length of an average football match.

‘Jökullinn logar’ runs from June 16 at Háskólabíó and Borgarbíó. Find more details about times and pricing here!
