Though it may seem like there are fewer and fewer milestones in the world of film, look no further than “Autumn Lights,” the first independent American-Icelandic co-production both shot and completed in Iceland. In the film, young American photographer David (played by newcomer Guy Kent) is on assignment in a remote Icelandic community. One day, he discovers a deserted crime scene and becomes implicated in a local investigation, forcing him to remain in the town. While he’s there, he crosses paths with an intriguing Italian woman (Marta Gastini) who’s living with her Icelandic husband (Sveinn Ólafur Gunnarsson) in the countryside. As his fascination with the couple intensifies, he finds himself enscsonced in their lives. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.
