A SONG CALLED HATE
UPDATE: Sadly due to the international situation regarding COVID19, the 2020 CPH:DOX festival has been cancelled. We hope to be able to confirm future screenings of “A Song Called Hate” once the situation changes.
“A Song Called Hate”, a film we have executive produced, will have it’s world premiere at CPH:DOX, the Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival. It’s the directorial debut of Anna Hildur and the first feature to come out of our Icelandic production company Tattarrattat.
The feature documentary follows Hatari, a group of Icelandic performance artists, when they decide to enter their local Eurovision competition. But the stunt quickly goes too far when they are selected to represent Iceland at the 2019 Song Contest. Now Hatari are destined to travel to Tel Aviv, Israel, to represent their tiny country on the world stage. Faced with the pressing political context of the Israel-Palestine conflict, Hatari resolve to do something; to try to make a difference. Can they use their art to contribute to this critical debate? Or will their message fail to pierce the shiny bubble created by Eurovision? As Hatari try to change the world, “A Song Called Hate” charts how this journey changes them.
Alongside Hatari, “A Song Called Hate” features Palestinian and Israeli artists including filmmaker Nadav Lapid and musician Bashar Murad, Icelandic conceptual artist Ragnar Kjartansson and Katrín Jakobsdóttir, the Prime Minister of Iceland. The film is scored by Margrét Rán, from the Icelandic dream-pop band Vök.
