Heimildamyndin Svartihnjúkur-stríðssaga úr Eyrarsveit, segir frá árekstri íslenskrar sveitakyrrðar og hrikaleik heimstyrjaldarinnar síðari. Íslenskir bændur voru rifnir úr hversdagslegum búverkum til þess að fara á fjöll að leita að týndri herflugvél. Lýsingar þeirra á hrikalegri aðkomu og líkburð hafa lifað meðal sveitunga þeirra fram á þennan dag. Margvíslegar sögusagnir hafa spunnist um afdrif bresku flugmannanna og við kynnumst því hvernig íslensk þjóðtrú leitast við að útskýra ógnirnar og afleiðingar þeirra.
Í hermannagrafreit Fossvogskirkjugarðs standa sex legsteinar. En grafirnar sex geyma aðeins líkamsleifar fjögurra breskra flugmanna sem fórust á Snæfellsnesi í nóvember 1941. Skýrslur breska flughersins eru fáorðar um þetta sérkennilega mál.
En í Eyrarsveit á Snæfellsnesi hafa menn í áratugi sagt sögur af örlögum þeirra sem saknað er.

Það vantar herslumuninn!

Heimildamyndin er langt komin í vinnslu og aðeins lokahnykkurinn eftir. Myndin er að mestu fjármögnuð með sölu til RÚV, styrk frá Kvikmyndamiðstöð og nokkrum öðrum aðilum.
Það sem mig skortir nú er fjármagn til að kaupa erlent safnaefni, kvikmyndir sem teknar eru hér á landi í stríðinu og sýna vel hvað Ísland var mikilvægt í baráttunni um Atlantshafið. Líflína andstæðinga nasistaherjanna byggðist á birgðaflutningum skipalestanna sem m.a. komu við í Hvalfirði. Verkefni flugmannanna sem fórust við Svartahnjúk var að leita að kafbátum og herskipum Þjóðverjar sem reyndu að granda flutningaskipunum á leið yfir Atlantshafið.
Ég hef fundið mikið af girnilegu kvikmyndaefni sem ekki hefur sést hér áður. Þetta myndefni er fremur dýrt og hefur sprengt fjárhagsáætlun verkefnisins.
Til að bregðast við þessu eru tvær leiðir; að skera niður myndefnið í myndinni í viðráðanlegan kostnað - eða að reyna að safna fyrir myndefninu með hjálp ykkar.
Ég vel síðari kostinn og hef trú að það muni takast.

The documentary Black Peak -a war story, tells us how the Second World War collided with the peaceful countryside in Eyrarsveit county and how the legend of the crew and the airplane have lived on for more than 70 years.
In the Fossvogur Military Cemetery in Reykjavik Iceland there are 6 gravestones with the names of the crew of a Wellington bomber that in 1941 crashed into Svartahnjúk (Black Peak)mountain in West Iceland.
But the rescue team only found 4bodies.

We are almost there!
The documentary is well advanced in the process and in the final stage of editing. The film is mostly financed by the sale to the RÚV Public Broadcaster, funding from the Icelandic Filmcenter and several other smaller sources.
What I lack now is the funds to buy foreign archive material, films shot ??in Iceland during the WWII and show well how important Iceland was in the battle of the Atlantic. The lifeline of the Allied forces was based on the convoys of ships sailing from the US to Europe bringing supplies for the military. The task of the pilots that died at Black Peak was to search for submarines and German warships trying to destroy the transport ship on their way across the Atlantic.
I've found a lot of interesting archive films that has not been shown in Iceland before. This footage is rather expensive and has blasted our project budget.
In response to this there aretwo ways; to cut down the archive films in the documentary to manageable costs - or trying to collect the needed funds with your help.
I chose the latter option and have confidence that it will succeed.
