Dreamland / Thorfinnur Gudnason, Andri Snær Magnason

How much unspoiled nature should we preserve and what do we sacrifice for clean, renewable energy? In Dreamland, a nation with an abundance of choices gradually becomes caught up in a plan to turn its wilderness and beautiful nature into a massive system of hydroelectric and geothermal power plants with dams and reservoirs. Leading up to the country’s greatest economic crisis, the government started the largest mega project in the history of Iceland, to build the biggest dam in Europe to provide Alcoa cheap electricity for an aluminum smelter in the rugged east fjords of Iceland. Clean energy brings along a polluting industry and international corporations. Dreamland gradually turns into a disturbing picture of corporate power taking over nature and small communities. It’s the dark side of green energy.
