Details

The film reveals the development of Icelandic rock concerts from disco to rock in memorable way.

The film was made in co-operation with those who created the life of rock in Iceland, the film was shot among them, in their environment and “speaks” their language. Fridrik Thor Fridriksson trod a new path when he decided to make a documantary about rock music and show it in cinemas.

The film did not get any offical financial support and the Icelandic Board of Film Classification decided that no person under 14 should be allowed to watch the film, not the least because of a interview with the singer of the band Sjálfsfróun (Masturbation), where he candidly describes his experience of “sniffing”. Many people were unhappy about the Icelandic Board of Film Classification™s rate of the film and said... “it would be equally wise to ban newspapers.”

The film reveals the development of Icelandic rock concerts from disco to rock in memorable way. The film was made in co-operation with those who created the life of rock in Iceland, the film was shot among them, in their enviroment and “speaks” their language. It is not the least the interview with the musicians who talk about everything from fascism and punk to the NATO base radio in Iceland and Albert Gudmundsson, that show the spirit of the times so well. Fridrik Thor Fridriksson sets the tone for a successful career with a classic documentary about a sub-culture and individuals who defy “recognised” culture. English subtitles.

The film Rock in Reykjavík (written and directed by Fridrik Thor Fridriksson) gives a thorough overview of the powerful and expanding rock scene in Reykjavík at the beginning of the eighties. Most of the film consists of performances by a wide variety of rock-groups in various clubs and rehearsing places in Reykjavík, as well as interviews with members of the groups representing different views on such features of the rock scene as sex, drugs and politics. 19 groups appear in the film, showing a remarkable range of styles and attitudes.

The soundtrack is in Dolby-stereo
