QUAKE had its world premiere at Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival

Tinna Hrafnsdóttir's debut feature, Quake, had its world premiere at the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival on November 20. The film had great feedback from premiere guests and positive reviews from film critics.

Rob Aldam at Backseat Mafia writes: "it's a film which builds up its story in a number of layers." In Cinerama Film Online, Neil Baker writes: "Hrafnsdóttir's delicate yet powerful exploration of memory and family is both beautiful and assured. Her screenplay, wrapping us in Saga's slowly crumbling world before rebuilding that world through the shards of a fractured memory."
