An interesting and informative film about Villi's life work filming volcanoes. The setting isn't a glamorous movie theatre, but that adds to the charm. Villi's cat Mocha watched the film from my lap, friendliest cat I have met!

Opportunity to live a unique experience in Reykjavik: see 1 or 2 hours documentaries about volcanoes in Iceland (from the 40s on) and meet the man who made the docs. There is also a lovely and cute cat to make the experience even greater! Recommended!

Pro: Meet the maker. Most of the footage is made by Knut, the filmer himself. Con: the footage has been put together not so well organised. It is a sequence of dates and different vulcanos outbursts. If you want to understand it, bring a map...More

My husband and I are fascinated by geology so we stayed for both films. Villi himself introduced them- he first shot a film of a volcano when he was 13 and his father needed another camera operator! The first film was a general history of...More

This is a must in a tucked away red building in central reykjavik. You can watch a hour of extraordinary footage of Iceland's geological carnage. With understated commentary from the original cameraman Villi Knudsen. He looms around in the gloom of the cinema, plays down...More
