A project about a strong and independent woman facing harsh winters and unpredictable weather at one of the remotest and most isolated farms on Iceland.
"The Weather Report" is a project about a remote weather station and a sheep farm in the Icelandic fjords. It is a project about Icelandic winters and the incredible strength and independence of a woman living all alone in one of the most remote and isolated places in Iceland. A place that is perhaps facing its last decade and is not easy to get to. The nearest village is about an hour away and has eight inhabitants. The nearest town is about two hours away and in winter, when the pass is closed, the weather station can only be reached by boat and only when weather conditions permit. Everyday life on the farm is demanding. Especially when the dark winter comes and the daylight disappears. During this time, temperatures can drop below -10 degrees. The wind is sharp and the snow covers almost everything. But even in the worst snowstorm, there is a woman who leaves her house to collect meteorological data. Every three hours she reads the sea and the clouds and the measuring instruments of the weather station, day and night, no matter what. And if the information from the small station doesn't make it to Reykjavik, lives could be in danger as sailors rely on the forecast.
The project shows the strength and resistance of a woman who dedicated to live her life in the rhythm of the weather forecast. It shows her connection to nature at a place that has always been her home and her fight against disappearance.
