Midnight Sun

$13.95
Synopsis: 

Midnight Sun is situated in Strandvik, a small community in the north of Iceland in 1942, in the days leading up to Midsummer Eve, the time when the sun does not set. Set during the American occupation of Iceland in the Second World War, young Icelanders are eager to break out of the limitations of their own tradition. When American forces actually arrive in the community, the seductiveness of a flashy borrowed culture clashes with the Icelanders' mystical response to their own fierce, beautiful landscape, and also with their superstitious beliefs.
