DEVIL’S ISLAND is a bitter sweet tale of Iceland in the fifties. Life is rough in Reykjavik’s post-war slum of Camp Thule, where the abandoned US military barracks have been turned into makeshift homes. Struggling wives and their hard-working husbands try to make ends meet. The younger generation dreams of dollars, Rock’n’Roll and the American way of life. To celebrate or to drown their misery – they’re never short of a good reason to booze. Devil’s island vividly depicts the everyday life of a wacky family, their neighbours and friends and shows how some of their dreams come true and others don’t.
