Isold Uggadottir is an Icelandic filmmaker based in NYC. Her films include “Family Reunion” (Sundance ’07), "Committed" ("Njalsgata") (Icelandic Academy Award ’10) and “Clean”(Icelandic Academy Award ’11), which have screened at numerous festivals around the world, garnering a variety of awards. These, in addition to latest installment “Revolution Reykjavik,” all feature troubled females as lead characters, a trend the filmmaker seems unable to break. Prior to Columbia, she edited television documentaries for Partisan Pictures in New York. Her experience also includes childcare in Vienna, factory work in Copenhagen, table serving in Berlin, and telephone operating in Reykjavik. Currently, she favors writing, directing and editing, over the above – but only if characters involved are drug-addicted lesbians, struggling to make ends meet – in the midst of an Icelandic economic crisis.
