Trasfoco: The Volcano Section

Volcano

A number of violent volcanic eruptions took place in 1973 in Iceland, affecting large areas of the country. Thousands of people were forced to leave their homes and move to other places. Some of them would never return to their communities, leaving behind them their ways of life and forced to adapt to other types of jobs and social contexts. This film enters into the inner life and the final years of one of those displaced men, a fisherman: looking after his wife, the difficult relationship with his children and the affectionate bonds with his grandchildren are all mixed together with memories of his former life.
