In the countryside, an abandoned farm is burning. In a school, a children’s choir is singing carols. In a museum, a mother is arguing with her ex-husband on the phone. In a living room, a young girl is making her grandmother try on her new virtual reality headset. In 56 short scenes from Icelandic everyday life, Echo breaks up the traditional cinematic narrative and instead lets a mosaic of voices and stories shape a portrait of postmodern society, a contemporary mirror. Echo is a film where reality was captured, initiated and staged and is thus an experimental documentary by its nature.
