Log in to play this film

Iceland benefits greatly from tourism. The island nation became famous after the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull in 2010 and has been experiencing a visitor boom for years. However, many Icelanders are paying a high price for this. The home of thousands of people is changing drastically. Nature is being destroyed and the otherwise idyllic and lonely regions are being overrun by thousands of tourists. Three young filmmakers from Schleswig-Holstein take a detailed look at the advantages and disadvantages of tourism on location, conducting interviews with experts and locals who experience the sunny and dark sides. The filmmakers take viewers on their journey and let them look behind the scenes of their debut feature film.
