Further Information

The Trailer/Teaser

The youngest actors. Kevin Kuklis and Þorsteinn Stefánsson

The youngest actors are Kevin Kuklis and Þorsteinn Stefánsson.

Some of our hearing cast and crew had to learn a bit of Icelandic Sign Language (ÍTM) in order to be able to do their lines in the film.
However, one actor stood apart. He not only wanted to learn his lines in ÍTM, he also wanted to learn the entire language immediately!
Þorsteinn Stefánsson (Steini), who played the role of Kári's brother, Björn, wanted to be able to play and communicate with Kevin (Kári).

During the first day on the set, the boys could not communicate because they didn't know each other's language. Steini rose above the problem and found a way to solve it. Within a few days they stuck to one another and smiled at each other round the clock.

Kevin Kuklis and Þorsteinn Stefánsson, in their roles as brothers in the film, show incredible talent. They became the center of various scenes and were incredibly brave during difficult shots. It will be exciting to watch them grow up and to see if they make a career out of their talents.

Few reasons for why you should support this project

What makes this short film so unique is that both Icelandic and Icelandic Sign Language is used. Also the film is produced from the perspective of a Deaf individual in Iceland. As one watches the film, the ending will have you at your seat's edge and give you a surprise you will never forget.

We are on Facebook, check it out.
