HAM is an Icelandic rock band which was active in the years 1988 to 1994. They are often listed as a Heavy Metal band but have never categorized themselves as such. They did not attain significant popularity while active, but have gradually come to be acknowledged as an important part of Icelandic rock history. Today they command a cult following among many Icelandic rock enthusiasts.
Born 1968, Thorgeir Gudmundsson is a native of Reykjavik, but has spent about half his life in the US. He is a graduate (MFA) of Columbia University Film Division in New York. He has much experience in documentary films (i.e.HAM Living Dead, 2001, 85min), but has also gained reputation for directing fictional narratives, with his two award winning shorts BSI (2001, 20min) and Memphis (2002, 10min).
