Less than 100 km from Reykjavik lies Strokkur. The scar of the Earth that refuses to heal; a wound from which hot water gushes out every seven minutes. The music and film are practically making themselves. 

João Salaviza was born in Lisbon in 1984. His first short film Two People won the Take One Award in Vila do Conde. In 2009, with Arena, he won the Palme d’Or for Best Short Film at the Cannes FF and Best Portuguese Short Film Award at IndieLisboa.
