    I never have a clear plot idea in mind, I wait and see when a film takes off and then follow it wherever it wants to go. I think this that’s inspiring.

His first full-length film WINTER BROTHERS (2017) was selected at Locarno Film Festival, Toronto IFF and Helsinki IFF among others where it was highly awarded. Hlynur also works as an artist and has hosted a number of paintings and photo exhibitions. His second feature A WHITE, WHITE DAY (2019) is selected at the 58th Semaine de la Critique.
