A stunningly shot rumination on faith and humanity, GODLAND follows the track of a 19th century Danish priest sent to build a church in a remote corner of Iceland’s unforgiving southeastern coast. On his journey, the priest is tested in both body and soul. The latest from acclaimed Icelandic director Hlynur Pálmason (A White, White Day) is a ruggedly gorgeous psychological epic in the vein of Brattle favorites Ingmar Bergman, Werner Herzog, and Andrei Tarkovsky.

“I left the cinema dazed and elated by its artistry; it is breathtaking in its epic scale, magnificent in its comprehension of landscape, piercingly uncomfortable in its human intimacy and severity.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“A withering chronicle of spiritual hubris.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
