Angels of the Universe

Directed by Fridrik Thor Fridriksson

In Fridriksson’s latest, Paul unexpectedly slides into schizophrenia and a mental hospital where he forms friendships with a number of patients. The film follows their revolving door lives, with a lyrical beauty that avoids sentimentality (and leavens sadness with subtle humour) to offer a depiction of mental illness whose truthfulness is based on experience. “A profoundly moving view of humanity.” Seattle Film Festival Plus Two pop videos by Icelandic band Sigur Rós who contributed to the soundtrack.
