Nú er framleiðslan komin á bullandi skrið á stuttmyndinni SÓL.
Um er að ræða sjálfstæða framleiðslu undir flaggi Alkul films og Reykjavik Love Junkie.
SÓL er leikstýrð af Aríel Jóhanni, og skrifuð af Sigurði Antoni Friðþjófssyni.

Myndin fjallar um unga konu að nafni Sól, sem er að safna sér fyrir námi erlendis.
Hún er meðvirkt peð eldri systur sinnar, Bríetar, sem leigir Sól út sem “mennskan boxpúða” sem útrás fyrir blæti ýmissa skuggalegra karla.
Meðan á þessu stendur liggur móðir Bríetar og Sólar, fárveikur alkóhólisti, á sjúkrahúsi í dái eftir hjartaáfall.
Myndin endar með blóðugu uppgjöri milli systra. Mun Sól komast úr þessum skaðlegu aðstæðum og öðlast frelsi frá stjórn fjölskyldu sinnar?

Mynd eftir Sigmund Breiðfjörð

SÓL er dramatísk spennumynd, umvafin kolsvörtum húmor. Hún verður skotin í mjög realískum stíl, með miklum dramatískum skuggum og sterkum Neo-Noir blæbrigðum, en mun þó viðhalda fögrum tökustílnum sem Alkul films einkennir sig við. Tökumaður myndarinnar er Elvar Guðmundsson (kynningarfulltrúi hjá RÚV).

Framleiðendur eru Aríel Jóhann og Silja Ástudóttir (hjá Alkul films) og Sigurður Anton (hjá Reykjavík Love Junkie).

Nánar um aðstandendur myndarinnar:

Aríel Jóhann er kvikmyndagerðarmaður og leikstjóri.

Hann hefur skrifað, leikstýrt og framleitt fjölda stuttmynda, heimildarmynda og styttri verkefni.

Þá ber helst að nefna “Jól í heimsendi” - vef-seríu og jóladagatal sem vakti mikla lukku á netheimum, og “Ísabellu” - kvikmynd í fullri lengd sem er væntanleg í október.

--- English description ---

Production is now underway for the short film SÓL (translation: Sun), a film by Aríel Jóhann.

This is an independent production, produced by Aríel’s “Alkul films” og Sigurður Anton’s “Reykjavík Love Junkie”.
Director is Aríel Jóhann while the film is originally written by Sigurður Anton.

Sól is an action-drama, epitomized with the dark and cynical humor so inherent in Icelandic culture.
It tells the story of a young girl by the name of Sól, who is trying to save up money for her college education abroad. She is a co-dependent pawn of her sister’s, Bríet, who rents Sól out as a “human punching bag”. This in turn serves as an outlet for a number of shady men who’s fetish or need is to beat on a woman with no consequences.
Although the two sisters share a certain calmness they are extremely different; Sól being the younger, more passive but more physical, and Bríet the authoritarian provider, borderline sociopathic older sibling.
Meanwhile the mother of the two lies in a coma at a hospital, the result of a lifelong struggle with alcoholism and substance abuse.
The film results in the bloody culmination between sisters. Will Sól get away from the mental, and physical, abuse and gain some freedom and independence?

The film will be shot in a very realistic style, but with dark and dramatic shadows and a strong Neo-Noir influence, while retaining the Alkul films beauteous shooting style, with long and fluid motions of the camera and a strong emotional impact on the viewer.
The Director of Photography is Elvar Guðmundsson.

SÓL is produced by Aríel Jóhann og Silja Ástudóttir (at Alkul films) and Sigurður Anton (at Reykjavík Love Junkie).
