Northwest Tracking: BLUEBERRY SOUP w/ director Eileen Jerrett in attendance

Blueberry soup

Blueberry soup, an Icelandic comfort food, is an apt metaphor for this insightful documentary that explores the unique and devastating situation of a country gone bankrupt. In the aftermath of the 2008 economic collapse in Iceland, the Nordic island country undertook the revolutionary task of rewriting their constitution. With a lens on the impacts the process has on the cultural landscape, Jerrett’s film interweaves interviews with a local fisherman, members of the constitutional council, Icelandic music stars, and journalists, displaying a proud nation whose people have endured turbulent times and are curious about their future. (80 mins.)

Director Eileen Jerrett will lead an audience Q&A following the screening.

 

BLUEBERRY SOUP screens Thursday, May 22 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our ongoing Northwest Tracking series.

Tickets are available online or at the door.
