Einvera (Solitude)

A NYU Tisch grad with a pair of attention-getting shorts under her belt, Ninna Pálmadóttir worked herself into feature film terrain with a screenplay renowned filmmaker Rúnar Rúnarsson. Solitude won the ArteKino International Award for best project of Coproduction Village at Les Arcs Film Festival at the 2021 edition and was showcased as an Out of Comp item in the Works in Progress section at the fest the following year.
