Nói Albínói (Nói the Albino, 2003)

A wonderboy and drop-out on an Icelandic village scale, Nói (17), dreams of escaping from his remote fjord with the girl from the gas station.

Nói Albínói is the film début of Dagur Kári. It is a warm yet black-humored comédie dramatique shot during the depths of winter in a breathtaking but harsh environment — the North–Western part of Iceland.

The film toured festivals all over the world (Telluride, Toronto, Rotterdam, Chicago) and won nineteen international prizes (including
and the Nordic Film Prize at the Gothenburg Film Festival.)

Dagur Kári wrote and directed Nói Albínói. He also made the music for the film with photographer Orri Jónsson; together they form
a band called slowblow.*

* Orri Jónsson’s book of photography, INTERIORS (Steidl, 2012) is currently on display at Arkadia. A text by Orri, Dagur and his brother can be found in a library-card pocket inside the binding of the book).
