LOBSTER SOUP wins Best Documentary award at DocsValència

Lobster Soup, the Spanish/Icelandic/Lithuanian documentary directed by Pepe Andreu and Rafael Molés, won the Mirades award for best documentary at the DocsValència International Festival. The festival took place from December 10 - 19. Lobster Soup had its world premiere in the Zinemira section at the prestigious San Sebastian International Film Festival in September. 

Every morning Krilli prepares the many ingredients of Bryggjan's lobster soup, a tiny cafe in a small town in Iceland. Alli, Krilli's brother, sits with the old fishermen, the last boxer of Iceland and a writer, who find, every day, a new solution for all the problems of the world. People from abroad come to Iceland to see the volcanoes, the ice and the genesis of the Earth. And now the tourists and the lava field seem to push the whole town more and more towards the sea. The Bryggjan cafe holds the port, clinging to the ground. It serves as a shelter on the last 3,000 square meters of buildable ground in the harbor for the locals of the town.

Lobster Soup is directed by Pepe Andreu and Rafael Molés, and written by Andreu, Molés, Ólafur Rögnvaldsson og Arunas Matelis. It is produced by Andreu and Molés for Suica Films, and coproduced by José Luis Rubio for Rec Grabaketa Estudioa, Ólafur Rögnvaldsson for Axfilms and Algimanté Mateliene for Studio Nominum.
