Dagur Kari's Noi the Albino
Noi the Albino’s successful negotiation of the tensions between the local and the global contribute to the film’s status as a contemporary classic. Its place within the history of Icelandic cinema highlights the specific problems this small nation faces as it pursues its filmmaking ambitions, allowing us to appreciate the remarkable success of Kari’s film in relation to the challenges of transnational filmmaking.
"A helpful, lucid account of both text and context. . . . The study is most illuminating when dealing with the aesthetics and recurrent images of the film: its use of colour, its place in a cinema that is concerned with Islands, and with maps."—Edward Gallafent, Viewfinder, October 2011
