End of Summer

End of Summer

Konec léta

Producer, Co-producer: Louise Højgaard Johansen (KILLIT FILMS)
Color: Black and white
Language: Silent
Directorial effort of the celebrated Icelandic film music composer Jóhann Jóhannsson. A wordless meditation on the beauty of nature from places at the end of the world and beyond. A cello, harmonized with singing and field recordings acquired during his trip to Antarctica, intertwines throughout the post-production edited black and white Super 8mm footage. 

“End of Summer was meant as a document of my time spent in Antarctica. I didn’t go there with the intention of making a film. I don’t see my films as being a career change to film directing. It’s more an extension to what I do as a composer.“ J. Jóhannsson
