The Mythic Guide To Iceland: Witches, ghosts and trolls - Oh My!
It’s exciting times here at The Doc Collective, in our debut week as a platform we’re pleased as punch to have released our very first DOCCO ‘The Mythic Guide to Iceland’.
The first episode ‘An Introduction To: The Mythic Guide to Iceland’ premiered yesterday and we can’t wait to showcase the rest of the series. Be sure to check out further films every Tuesday in the upcoming weeks.
“What’s ‘The Mythic Guide to Iceland’ I hear you cry?”
Docco # 1, is an alternative journey through different iconic locations in Iceland synonymous with different myths and legends. Our tour guides? Why, a colourful cast, including a god, a viking, a ghost, a witch and trolls of course!
In the early stages of working up the idea of filming a guide to Iceland, we thought who better than the protagonists of the stories to tell us what really happened there. Each film is a visual tale, in which our central protagonists of the stories (through first person) tell us their own unique fables.
