“Art continues on regardless of the situation; art always finds a way, always, even when everything stops.”
Watch the international online premiere of the new feature documentary film Apausalypse, directed by Anni Ólafsdóttir and Andri Snær Magnason.
Set in an unprecedented moment of global stillness, Apausalypse follows artists and thinkers in Iceland as they interpret a world gripped by the pandemic. Through dance, poetry, music, and visual art, they reflect on the possibilities for transformation that are held within this great pause.
This film premieres as increased access to the vaccine and fatigue from eighteen months of isolation are greatly accelerating efforts to a “return to normal.” As we see a dancer performing on a vacant airport tarmac, a poet reading to an empty theater, and a cellist playing alone in his living room—we feel the pain of isolation and the presence of fear, but a question also lingers: should we return to the way things were?
After the screening, Anni and Andri will join us for a conversation with Emergence Executive Editor Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee and a Q&A with the audience.
Note: the link to watch the livestream will be emailed to registrants before the screening starts.
Note that this event has been rescheduled. This event was originally scheduled for Friday, September 10th, but has since been rescheduled for Thursday, September 9th.

Emergence MagazineEmergence Magazine believes that it has always been a radical act to share stories during dark times. They are a regenerative space of creation and renewal. As we experience the burning of our forests, the desecration of our lands and waters, the extinguishing of species, and a loss of sacred connection to the earth, we look to emerging stories. In them, we find the timeless connections between ecology, culture, and spirituality.
