A WHITE, WHITE DAY wins the Talents prize at D'A Film Festival Barcelona

Hlynur Pálmason's A White, White Day won the main award, the Talents prize for best movie, at D'A Film Festival Barcelona, Spain. The festival took place online from April 30 - May 10. This is the film's 15th international award. 

The Talents prize is awarded to directors with fewer than three features in their filmography. In the jury's reasoning it says: The 10,000 euros in prize money goes to a thriller with an existential air that has been one of the biggest sensations of the recent Icelandic movie scene. The jury admired its “accurate, emotional portrayal of rage in the midst of the ice. A film that is full of ideas, and a piece of powerful yet intimate cinema.”

A White, White Day is written and directed by Hlynur Pálmason and produced by Anton Máni Svansson for Join Motion Pictures. The film is an Icelandic/Danish/Swedish coproduction.

International sales for A White, White Day are being handled by New Europe Film Sales (jan@neweuropefilmsales.com).
