Apausalypse is a 52 minute documentary film by Anni Ólafsdóttir and Andri Snær Magnason, exploring the deeper meaning of the great pause, when the world stopped due to the Corona Pandemic. The film can be seen here – on the website of Emergence Magazine. When our premier for The Hero’s Journey to the Third Pole was cancelled due to the first Covid 19 lockdown in Iceland we went out with a very good camera to capture and explore what was happening in the world.

Apausalypse was nominated to the EDDA Award as Best Documentary in Iceland 2021 as well as best Cinematography.

We made a multimedia article for Emergence Magazine that will serve as a good introduction to the project. This text also serves in my book On Time and Water as a Covid Postscript.
