PIFF 38: LIFE IN A FISHBOWL

Life in a Fishbowl2

Director Baldvin ZophonÍasson explores the roots of the 2008 Icelandic economic collapse with an emotionally-gripping ensemble piece focusing on the lives of three characters, each leading a surprising double-life and all in search of redemption: a gifted poet haunted by his past, a debt-ridden young mother making ends meet through illicit ‘moonlighting,’ and a former soccer star-turned-international-banker. In the ‘fishbowl’ of their lives, they navigate the dark and shark-infested waters, hoping to survive. One of the biggest domestic critical and box-office hits in Iceland, Fishbowl is this year’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.

LIFE IN A FISHBOWL screens Wednesday, February 11 at 8:30pm at the Moreland Theater and Saturday, February 14 at 12:30pm at Cinema 21 as part of the 38th Portland International Film Festival.

Tickets are available online or at the door.


The Portland International Film Festival is sponsored by The Oregonian/OREGONLIVE, LAIKA, Regal Entertainment Group, Delta Airlines, Yelp!, Travel Portland, King Estate, Hotel Modera, The Autzen Foundation, The Lamb-Baldwin Foundation, KINK.fm, and many others.
