The Possibility of an Island

After a cataclysmic volcanic eruption, Iceland becomes uninhabitable for the next thirty years. With few options available, the International community decides to resettle the entire Icelandic population on Croatian islands to preserve their culture and identity, until they can return to their homeland. The two nations — one a progressive Northern united front, the other a stagnant, stubborn Southern breed — clash over social values, religion, politics and climate, while attempting to find common ground and co–exist in this new society.

Produced by Nebojsa Taraba, Drugi Plan (Croatia) and Hordur Runarsson, Glassriver (Iceland). Written by Mateja Božičević . Sales and director TBA. Format: 8×50’. Premier at fall 2022.
