GODLAND  is a stunning historical drama of a Danish priest who made a pilgrimage across a largely unexplored Iceland in the late 1800s. The deeper he goes into the unforgiving landscape, the more he strays from his purpose, the mission and morality, with unexpected and shocking repercussions. 

Lucas (Elliot Crosset Hove), an idealistic but naive young Lutheran clergyman, is on his way to a remote part of Iceland to build a church and photograph its people. With the help of a translator and a guide he must journey across the spectacular and dangerous terrain, littered with glaciers and rivers. But the deeper he goes into the unforgiving landscape, the more he strays from his purpose, the mission and morality, with unexpected and shocking repercussions.

The Director Hlynur Pálmason captures the unwelcome priest's perilous journey in haunting detail and artistry, with evocative cinematography from Maria von Hausswolff that mirrors his characters’ obsession to document a strange new environment, and where worlds, ideas and language collide with enthralling impact.

"I left the cinema dazed and elated by its artistry; it is breathtaking in its epic scale, magnificent in its comprehension of landscape, piercingly uncomfortable in its human intimacy and severity." The Guardian 

"Absolutely breathtaking." Austin Chronicle

"Like all the best movies, we can’t tell where this is going. When it arrives, the finale is worthy of all that has come before. " Sydney Morning Herald
