THE SWAN is Ása Helga Hjörleifsdótirr’s astonishing feature debut–A poignant and unique coming of age story set in Iceland, THE SWAN views the world from the powerful and nuanced feminine perspective of the wayward, 9-year old Sól, sent to the countryside to work and mature while living with relatives. This summer marks Sól’s rite of passage into the murky waters of adulthood, and the wild nature in us all.
