Flora is a 60 minutes long documentary on the painter Eggert Pétursson. The Tröllaskagi peninsula is the film's dynamic cornerstone on our trip through the Highlands and Skaftafell National Park. Our guide is botanist Thóra Ellen Thórhallsdóttir, who connects the dots between our experience of the Icelandic nature and the floral diversity of Eggert's flower paintings. From his book of sketches, surrounded by a musical ode to Mother Nature, where the flora's perseverance and complexity matches the world of the painting while emphasizing the coexistence of these two worlds.
