Godland12A

Directed by Hlynur Pálmason | Denmark/Iceland | 2022 | 2h 23m | Danish & Icelandic w/ English subtitles | Starring Elliott Crosset Hove, Ingvar Sigurdsson, Vic Carmen Sonne, Jacob Lohmann, Hilmar Guðjónsson

At the end of the 19th century, a young Danish priest is sent to a remote Icelandic outpost to establish a church. The deeper he travels into the unforgiving landscape, the more he loses touch with his own reality, his mission, and his sense of moral duty. A beautifully shot psychological epic exploring Iceland’s colonial past and the struggle between religious strictures and more brutish elements of human nature.

Reviews

‘With Godland, Pálmason has enlisted us for a voyage of visual splendor, as terrifying as it is breathtaking, and divine contemplation.’

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
