Synopsis

The Ring Road is an experiment in the fields of physics, mathematics and geography but also in film directing, cinematography and sound. The procedure: a camera is fastened to a car’s dashboard, a computer is connected the camera, and the car is taken on a joyride down Highway No.1. Every twelve meters, a single frame is shot, thus simulating the speed of sound. The result: This road trip along Iceland’s Ring Road, completed in 1974 in commemoration of the 1100th anniversary of the country’s first human settlement, presents the viewer Iceland in all her beauty: from rolling hills, snow-capped volcanoes, valleys, seacoast, lakes, glaciers and geysers to small towns, isolated farms and ever-changing colours.
