Icelandic documentary film ‘Grace of God’ (Drottins náð) by director Kristján Loðmfjörð has been nominated for the NORDIC:DOX award at CPH:DOX International Documentary Film Festival.
The film, which will also hold its international premiere at the festival, examines the relationship between people, animals and faith.
Akin to an oral history, the film features 13 individuals who share their personal experiences with a particular animal, relaying everything from profound friendships to a range of unusual interactions. There are stories of farm animals as well as beloved family pets, even animals of exceptional intelligence, who in some cases have used their instincts and wit to save the storyteller’s life.
