As worthy Heir to a Norse Mythology of tales of deities, heroes and the fantasy genre, the Icelandic artist Mundi Vondi transcended his new collection* “post-post-apocalypse” AW 2013 in a surreal fable called SNOW BLIND.
Set in an undefined future, the movie features the adventure of heroes exploring life after apocalypse, (leaded by actor Tomas le marquis).
Showcased in Eldborg, main concert hall of Harpa during Reykjavik Fashion Festival n°4, the highlight of the film screening was when his "characters’ were brought to life on stage, emerging from earth, walking on treadmills. The magic of light, rythm of music and strength of the image are an invitation to travel into an adventure and a quest.
"Who ever that looks into the future for answers about the universe, and won’t be afraid to step on a few toes to find out, won’t be disappointed.“
*“MUNDI 66°NORTH” is a fusion between the highly technical production quality from 66°NORTH which have been keeping Icelanders warm for almost a century, and the surreal and creative world of Mundi.
