We follow a painter, a successful artist living alone and isolated. Driven only by his work, he finds himself lost when he is forced to deal with his unannounced son (and other outsiders) that stand in the way of his work and get him out of balance.
Hlynur Pálmason, born 1984, graduated from the Danish Film School, EN MALER is his graduation film (Best Danish Short Film Odense Film Festival 2013, Best Short Film Reykjavik International Film Festival 2014). On his web site he writes about himself: “I’m an Icelandic artist / filmmaker. I live in Copenhagen, Denmark with my wife and three children. The summers are spent in my studio in Iceland.” Hlynur is currently on festival tour with his most recent short film SEVEN BOATS (2014, 10 min.) and is preparing his feature film debut.
