Flight from the City

Flight from the City is a film about connection, love and separation and transition. Starkly shot in ‘black’ water, it focuses on the bond between a mother and daughter. This poetic, emotive film will strike a chord in all of us, reflecting our own relationships whether it is with a child, a parent or a partner. The film was shot in March 2015 in the hot spring at Fludir in Iceland for a new composition, Flight from the City which was created for Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, who sadly passed away earlier this year. This is the second collaboration between Jóhannsson and Langan, the first being The Floating World ( 2013).
