Free Screening: The Deep
In Iceland’s official Oscar submission for Best Foreign Language Film, director Baltasar Kormakur turns his eye toward a spectacle that made intense demands on the filmmaker and his cast. The Deep takes us inside a fishing boat that’s slammed by disaster—a horrific and unforeseen circumstance sinks their boat and leaves Gulli (Olafur Darri Olafsson) to survive the pounding punishment and fighting to stay alive. Kormakur, whose films include 101 Reykjavik and Jar City, small-scale stories with grim, telling bursts of comedy, veers into an epic direction with The Deep (which he co-wrote) and yet maintains his sure grip on intimate emotional notes.
