Storyline

Mare is a tale of being an adult and facing your responsibilities. But it happens to contain an egg laying woman, an ancient demon that lives underneath the basement and an innocent young father that turns into a crazed maniac.

PÉTUR and MIRA, a couple in their thirties, move from Nashville Tennessee to a remote place in the outskirts of Iceland. There they plan to make a guest house and lure in tourist from all over the world. Soon after they arrive they realize that things are far from normal out there in the Icelandic wilderness and even more troubling in their new home. One day they discover a deep hole in the basement of the house. At first they think little of this but soon after its discovery odd things start to occur. The couple have trouble sleeping and as a result of demons giving them night terrors MIRA gets impregnated and lays an egg 1 day later. A human-like child comes out of the egg.

MIRA cares for the child and acts as if nothing out of the ordinary just happened. PÉTUR has a hard time reacting the same way. He finds himself on a crossroad; he can either support MIRA and take full responsibility over the child’s well being and therefore complete the family circle he and his wife always dreamt of, or he can face reality and convince MIRA to stand beside him and fight off the evil that haunts them in their new, rough and isolated environment.

Why make films?

Why go through all of the hassle, just to make a movie?

Making a movie can certainly be challenging. The task ahead often seems unsolvable and endless, it can be challenging to keep oneself motivated throughout the whole process. Our project is ambitious and acquires constant monitoring of details, because the small things are what makes your film big.

Mare is the film we’ve dreamt of making and watching since we began being influenced by cinema. The film that depicts an adventurous side of Iceland, its nature and folklore. As kids we were raised watching films such as The Shining, The Thing and The Exorcist and have dreamt of creating a parallel journey of emotions in our own natural environment. We are a new breed of Icelandic filmmakers. We are of a generation that thirsts for a new kind of an Icelandic films. The kind of films that speak to us as kids growing up, rebellious teenagers and adults with kids of our own. Mare is a film that takes us away from our mundane reality and to a world of fantasy. A fantasy world constructed of the elements that surrounds us every day. A world we can both relate to and get lost within.

We ask you to help us make our dream become a reality. Help us make both a great and original film that can entertain and even share some enlightenment with our generation as with generations to come. Help us take the gigantic step towards making the film of our dreams and hopefully the dream of many others.

Thank you!

Thank you for your time and consideration, we hope you enjoyed our presentation. We hope that we evoked your interest and that you are as enthusiastic about seeing the end results as we are. See you at the movies!
