Belgium, Iceland 2022 – Director: Dorus Masure, Ischa Clissen – Original language: Icelandic – Subtitles: English

Fire and ice, black and white: the contrasts could hardly be more striking than in the land around the Icelandic volcano Katla. As a tourist attraction, a key part of the economy and impending natural disaster, it has an impact on the life of everyone living in the fishing village Vík í Mýrdal. 100 years since the last eruption, they wait for the next one, which is long overdue. Anja Klauck
