THE LAST AUTUMN at CPH:DOX in a digital version

The Last Autumn by Yrsa Roca Fannberg is screening at a digital version of CPH:DOX (Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival). CPH:DOX is one of the biggest documentary film festivals in the world and takes place online from March 18 - 29.

In the light of the global crisis related to COVID19, and following the latest announcement from the Danish Government on March 11, further restricting public gatherings, CPH:DOX decided to roll out its 2020 edition in a digital version. 

The Last Autumn had its world premiere at Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and was directed by Yrsa Roca Fannberg and produced by Hanna Björk Valsdóttir for Akkeri Films and Biti aptan bæði.

More than a thousand autumns ago, humans arrived with their animals to a land pushed up against the Arctic Ocean. Autumns came and autumns went. Where the road ends, Úlfar, the last in a long line of farmers, lives with his wife. As autumn returns, their grandchildren arrive from the city to attend the last herding of the flock. Next autumn farming will cease and all the sheep will be gone, but the landscape pushed up against the Arctic Ocean will continue to tell about that one last autumn.

The Last Autumn was shot by Carlos Vásquez Méndez and edited by Federico Delpero Bejar. The music is by Gyda Valtýsdóttir and sales for the film are being handled by Akkeri Films: hannabjork@gmail.com.
