In person: Ásdís Thoroddsen!

An interesting women’s perspective on the male-dominated fishing world, Ingaló features an award-winning performance by Sólveig Arnarsdóttir as the title character, who works alongside her brother Sveinn on their father’s small fishing boat. After a fight at a local dance, Ingaló leaves home for Reykjavik. Later, when her brother gets a job as a deckhand on a commercial fishing boat, she joins the crew as a cook; but Sveinn isn’t really cut out for a life at sea, and Ingaló finds her protective feelings for her brother running up against her own complex relations with the other sailors.
