This film joins Víkingur Ólafsson at home along with his wife, Halla Oddný Magnúsdóttir, as they as they prepare to perform music from his album From Afar at a one-off concert at Víkingur’s second home, Harpa Concert Hall. Víkingur talks about From Afar – his most personal album to date – as well as life on the road, playing at different music halls for big audiences around the world every week, and how he handles the critics and the endless flights and hotel stays. The result offers both an intimate portrait of one of the most innovative and inquisitive musicians of our age and rare insight into his mind and creative process.
