In October 2008, the three main banks in Iceland collapsed, driving a nation into bankruptcy, causing thousands of people to lose their jobs, their personal savings − and their hope. How does a nation, once one of the richest and most developed countries in the capitalist world, react to a total economic collapse? In a landscape where ‘to be rich’ used to be a virtue, who is really to blame for the collapse of a far-too-fast-and-greedy banking system? Or rather, could the decline of the capitalist values be the best thing that could have happened to Iceland? Iceland: Year Zero is not an economic analysis of the bankruptcy of a nation, but rather a film about the aftermath; the impact on the people who have to deal with these economic catastrophes. It is a universal portrait of a nation of our times.
