Dreamland is a film about a nation standing at a crossroad. Leading up to Iceland's greatest economic crisis, its government started the largest megaproject in the country's history: To build the biggest dam in Europe. Under the mantra of economic growth, the dam was to provide Alcoa, a leading producer of aluminum, with cheap electricity for an aluminum smelter in the rugged east fjords of Iceland. Today, Iceland is left with a huge debt, facing an uncertain future.
