THE JUNIPER TREE (1990 - Dir. Nietzchka Keene)

The Juniper Tree is a 1990 Icelandic film with a small cast of five actors, Björk, Bryndis Petra Bragadóttir, Guðrún S. Gísladóttir, Valdimar Örn Flygenring and introducing Geirlaug Sunna Þormar. It was written and directed by Nietzchka Keene and based on the fairy tale "The Juniper Tree" collected by the Brothers Grimm.

The film was shot in Iceland with an extraordinarily small budget in the summer of 1986, but because of financial problems later on in the editing room it was not released until 1990, when it screened for the "Grand Jury Prize" at the Sundance Film Festival

GYNOECIUM (2015 - Dir. Emelia McKay & Rusty Kelley)

A short film which is a documented ritual and performance piece dealing the themes of fertility , the origins of female sexuality in myth, history and biology and finally a exploration of the feminist artist Judith Anderson's body of work.
