The Deposit

A project by Eva Sigurdardottir - Contact



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.​
