In October 2008 Iceland was hit with one of the biggest financial disasters any nation in the world had experienced. In response, citizens took to the streets creating what is now known as the “Pots and Pans Revolution”. In response to widespread media silence and a growing global trend towards people-led movements, this documentary explores how and why the people of Iceland resisted the measures imposed by their government following the crisis of 2008 and how they forced their government to resign in an attempt to forge a new political path. Filmed in Reykjavik between 2012 and 2014, the documentary meets the instigators of the revolution and follows the most important National Referendum in Iceland’s history. Giving the Icelandic people the opportunity to decide whether to support a c...

A look at Reykjavik Iceland from 1926
Reykjavik, on the coast of Iceland, is the country's capital and largest city. It's home to the National and Saga museums, tracing Iceland’s Viking history. The striking concrete Hallgrimskirkja church and rotating Perlan glass dome offer sweeping views of the sea and nearby hills.

A quick look at prices in a local convenience store.
When Iceland's banking system collapsed in 2008, people were understandably angry. The crisis almost destroyed the remote North Atlantic nation. But Icelanders, who have survived plenty over the course of their history—including volcanic eruptions, invasions and harsh weather—fought back. Sick of politics-as-usual, a new and dramatically unconventional movement emerged to challenge the status quo. Iceland is tiny. Just 320,000 people inhabit the entire island, and as Vocativ found on our recent visit to Reykjavik, momentum builds quite quickly when a few people decide to take on the establishment. "We're like the canary in the coal mine," one Icelandic politician says. Iceland has a proud history of freedom and activism. (The anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks has been particularly active ther...
With a population of only 300,000, Iceland can feel like the most isolated place on earth, yet its capital Reykjavik, is only a three-hour flight from London and just under six from New York. Reykjavik is relaxed and welcoming, yet possesses a cultural life that holds its own against other European capitals. Most buildings are built simple and low to beat the North Atlantic winds. However, the city is also graced with grand civic architecture inspired by Iceland’s natural beauty, such as the soaring central tower of Hallgrímskirkja. Many of the country’s most popular sights are within easy reach of Reykjavík. Immerse yourself in the spirit of Iceland, at the Blue Lagoon. Then spend a day or two in The Golden Circle, an area which encompasses three of Iceland’s greatest natural wonders;...
