I REMEMBER YOU is Oskar Thór Axelsson's second feature film, his debut feature, crime thriller BLACK´S GAME (2013) was a huge international success which received praise both from critics and in the festival circuit.

An older lady hangs herself inside a church in the remote Westfjords of Iceland. This leads to an investigation into a number of strange deaths of elderly people in the region. Freyr, the new psychiatrist in town, further finds out, that the deceased woman was obsessed with the disappearance of his 7-year-old son, who disappeared without a trace three years prior. Across the bay in an abandoned village, three city dwellers are restoring a house when supernatural things start occurring. The two stories gradually intertwine and it turns out that a boy who vanished mysteriously some 60 years earlier is the connecting link.


I REMEMBER YOU is produced by Joni Sighvatsson, Thor Sigurjonsson, Skuli Malmquist and Chris Briggs for Zik Zak Filmworks in co-production with Ape & Björn Norway (Ruben Thirkildsen) and Maze Pictures in Germany. With support from the Icelandic Film Centre and the Norwegian Film Institute.
