An interview with director Yrsa Roca Fannberg, whose documentary feature The Last Autumn had its world premiere in the documentary competition of the 2019 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in the Czech Republic. The film takes place in an outermost cape of Iceland and it is a document of way of life that is slowly fading away. The director talks about this dimension of her film, her interest in documenting it and more.

The Last Autumn: If the world has an edge, then it is almost certainly visible from Iceland. On the outermost cape, beyond which there is only the inhospitable Arctic Ocean, lies a farm belonging to Úlfar and his wife. This autumn will be the last time their grandchildren come from the city to drive the sheep back down from the hills. An almost tangible cinematic fabric that weaves a tale of an abandoned place where the mist clings to the steel-blue surface of the sea and where the occasional human visitor is sometimes welcome.
