CREWFUNDING

Synopsis

The Deposit is a drama with a social-political edge and deals with the sensitivities and difficulties that arise when immigrants and locals mix. The story takes place in Iceland where immigration is a relatively new phenomenon. The film is based on Auður Jónsdóttir’s novel The Deposit (Tryggðarpantur) which received a nomination to the Icelandic Book Prize in 2006 and has been translated for the Scandinavian market. The film has received production funding from the Icelandic Film Centre and will start principal photography in September 2017. When Gisella becomes bankrupt, she decides to rent out her spare bedrooms to two immigrant women. The arrangement begins well for all parties but gradually the foreign influences in the home begin to threaten Gisella's control of the house, her morals and her sanity.​

Our script supervisor Helga Rakel Rafnsdóttir is one talented lady. Not only is she one of Iceland's most in-demand script supervisors, but she is also an established documentary producer with titles like 'Kjötborg', 'Keep Frozen' and 'Salome' under her belt, as well as she is writing her first fiction feature as director!
