On Land and Sea is produced by Snowglobe (Denmark), STILL VIVID (Iceland), and Maneki Films (France). The film takes place at the turn of the 20th century and follows a family that converts their house into a raft to sail across the sea in search of a better life. His latest feature, Godland, premiered in the Un Certain Regard section at the Cannes Film Festival in 2022 and was Iceland's submission for the Oscars.
