Jon Gnarr - My Reykjavik
Jon Gnarr - Mein Reykjavik
Jon Gnarr - My Reykjavík presents Jón Gnarr's favorite places in Reykjavík -- from his favorite bar, Café Haiti, to the thermal baths so important for Iceland. He visits historic places such as the guesthouse of the City of Reykjavík, where Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev heralded the end of the Cold War in 1986, as well as the working class neighborhood "Breidholt", where he had moved his mayor's office for some months.
In the film, Gnarr speaks about the causes of the financial crisis in Iceland, which almost resulted in financial ruin for the country, the unexpected success of his fun party, and his political vision of Reykjavík as a military-free zone. The documentary accompanies the ex-mayor at the presentation of the LennonOno Grant for Peace Award by Yoko Ono and the annual commissioning of the Imagine Peace Tower, her sculpture of light on a small island in the Bay of Reykjavík. For the film, Jón Gnarr also took a helicopter ride to the imposing volcanic landscapes of Iceland.
