END OF SENTENCE and THE DEPOSIT screened at Edinburgh International Film Festival

The feature films End of Sentence by Elfar Adalsteins and The Deposit by Ásthildur Kjartansdóttir will be screened at the Edinburgh International Film Festival as a part of the European Perspectives category. The category includes a selection of films which celebrate the rich cultural impact and importance of European cinema. The festival will take place from June 19 - 30.

This will be the world premiere of the film End of Sentence which is directed by Elfar Adalsteins and written by Michael Armbruster. The film is about Frank who embarks on a journey to honor his deceased wife's last wish of having her ashes spread in her native Ireland. Frank's estranged son, recently released from prison, reluctantly agrees to accompany his father, in return for a ticket to California and a promise of never having to see his father again. As it turns out, their journey together becomes more than both father and son had bargained for.

The Deposit is based on a novel by Audur Jónsdóttir and is directed by Ásthildur Kjartansdóttir. The film follows the journalist Gisella. When Gisella becomes bankrupt, she decides to rent out her spare bedrooms to two immigrant women. The arrangement begins well for all parties but gradually her tenants begin to threaten Gisella's control of the house, her morals, and her sanity.
