This coming Saturday Jan 8 -there will be an screening of Mamma Gogo at the opening day of the 12th Annual Scandinavian Film Festival L.A.
Momentum for veteran Icelandic Director Fridrik Thor Fridriksson’s MAMMA GOGO is mounting after a wonderful New York Times review put the film center stage in the race for Foreign Language Film nomination. The film finds the world of cinema converging with Alzheimer’s and the Icelandic economic collapse in a poignant and comic drama that engages cognitive and economic crisis in “pas de troi” with a film makers daily ups, downs, and dilemmas.
Fridriksson received an Academy Award nomination in 1992 for his film CHILDREN OF NATURE. Winner that year from an amazingly strong list of contenders was the Italian film Mediterraneo.
