About the Film
Sker is a short film featuring a true story of a kayaker traveling the Westfjords of Iceland. While kayaking in Arnarfjörður, he finds a skerry and decides to port there. He soon realizes that perhaps it wasn't such a good idea.
The film is shot entirely in one of the most remote places in Iceland, the Westfjords. The waterfall Dynjandi, which is portrayed in the beginning of the film, is one of the main symbols of the Westfjords. The skerry, named Gíslasker, has a long and interesting history that dates back to the settlement of the Vikings in Iceland.
Gláma, the production company behind the film, consists of 5 friends from the Westfjords. None of them has any expertise or education in filmmaking, but together, full of enthusiasm and joy, decided to go on and start making films anyway.
