The 1955 strike in Reykjavik was one of the hardest-hitting strikes in the Iceland's history. Trade unions stressed social rights but political currents were often ruled by the Cold War. Reykjavik was an active and a growing cultural city which experienced increasing import of unseen luxuries but also full-fledged poverty. The city has never experienced such a siege.
Directed by Einar Þór Gunnlaugsson.
