An aware artist or a sexy crackpot? She was an Icelandic painter and a filmmaker but most of all she was a rebel. Living in Rome for thirty years she despised bourgeois life and lived the ideas of the 68’ generation right to the end while she was struggling with her own demons, drugs and epilepsy.
Ásthildur Kjartansdóttir has produced and directed many films of all kind, dramas, documentaries and TV programs. Most of her films have been distributed in Iceland and several film festivals but two have been distributed in two other Nordic countries and Canada as well. Two of her documentaries have been nominated for Edda, The Icelandic Film prize award for the best documentary and two of her dramas have been nominated for the Icelandic DV cultural award.
