Sample text

If the 1960s saw a formal revolt take place in Icelandic prose, including Laxness's own novel Kristnihald undir jokli [Under 18 ADAPTING A LITERARY NATION TO FlLM the Glacier], Icelandic national cinema took little notice of it when established in the early 19808 (following the founding of the Icelandic Film Fund in 1978) and reverted to the older tradition.

This dramatic shift is not easily explained but one suspects that having gained acceptance filmmakers (and a new generation of these entered the field) felt the need to distance themselves from literature as evinced amongst other things in the refusal of Frioriksson - the period's most important and successful director- to make "myndskreyta b6kmenntaarftnn" [illustrations complementing the heritage] (Davfosd6ttir).
