The Deep (film)

There's a Scandinavian film on at Eastbourne's Curzon Cinema at the beginning of May. The Deep is an Icelandic/Norwegian co-production directed by Balthasar Kormákur from a screenplayby Jón Atli Jónasson and himself. The Deep has a 12A certificate and was selected as Iceland's entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar last year. This screening is an Eastbourne Film Society presentation.

The Deep tells the story of the incredible survival of an Icelandic fisherman named Guðlaugur Friðþórsson. He was aboard a boat with four colleagues when it capsized tipping them all into water that was only 5 degrees celsius. Guðlaugur swam for six hours in this freezing water before managing to drag himself ashore. However, his ordeal did not end there. He was washed up at a place where newly formed lava spills into the sea and had to walk across an area of rough lava in order to reach the nearest town.

Curzon Cinema, Wed 7th May, times tbc.
Tickets £6.80, £4.80 concessions, available by calling 01323 731441 or in person at the Box Office (15:00 to 19:00 daily).
