Screaming Masterpiece

My first movie of SIFF 2006 is a documentary about the music of Iceland called Screaming Masterpiece. The movie was very entertaining because of the music and the beautiful landscape footage, but I felt like it maybe could have delved a bit deeper into why Iceland is such a musically oriented country. This doesn't hurt the film at all, though. Fantastic live footage of Bjork, Sigur Ros, Mum and many others. It's playing again on June 3rd.
