About the film

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 directed by Yrsa Roca Fannberg and produced by Hanna Björk Valsdóttir for Akkeri Films and Biti aptan bæði. The film 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.
