  • About Endlessness is released. About Endlessness is a reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendour and banality. We wander, dreamlike, gently guided by our Scheherazade-esque narrator. Inconsequential moments take on the same significance as historical events: a couple floats over a war-torn Cologne; on the way to a birthday party, a father stops to tie his daughter’s shoelaces in the pouring rain; teenage girls dance outside a café; a defeated army marches to a prisoner of war camp. Simultaneously an ode and a lament, About Endlessness presents a kaleidoscope of all that is eternally human, an infinite story of the vulnerability of existence. [Venice]

After Reynir’s sudden and suspicious death, Inga learns the true extent of both her powerlessness and her late husband’s involvement with the co-op’s schemings. With an eye to the future, and with no other option, she aims to chip away at the co-op’s domination. Before long, the grieving Inga’s public stance makes her a pariah, setting up The County’s brilliant, oddly funny, and deeply involving tightrope walk: Inga must cautiously bring her community over to her side, risking her safety and sanity along the way. Egilsdóttir’s Inga is an altogether unforgettable character, committed to the thankless task of ruining her life in order to rescue her community.
