HotDocs Toronto: DREAMLAND or Whither Iceland?

     |    Wednesday, der 5. May 2010



Well, whither Iceland? And what would the elves and fairies say about all this? “DREAMLAND is a film about a nation standing at cross-roads. Leading up to the country’s greatest economic crisis, the government started the largest mega project in the history of Iceland, to build the biggest dam in Europe to provide Alcoa cheap electricity for an aluminum smelter in the rugged east fjords of Iceland. Today Iceland is left holding a huge debt and an uncertain future.


In DREAMLAND a nation with abundance of choices gradually becomes caught up in a plan to turn its wilderness and beautiful nature into a massive system of hydro-electric and geothermal power plants with dams and reservoirs. Clean energy brings in polluting industry and international corporations. It’s the dark side of green energy.” [Text in quotes:] Dreamland@HotDocs | Trailer | Website
