Private Project

Siglandi (2022)

Siglandi is an artistic music video made with the song "Siglandi" by Icelandic musician Atli Arnarsson from his upcoming album.

At a secluded construction side, in the middle of nowhere, we follow a day in the life of construction workers. Their daily tasks seem Sisyphean. What gives their work meaning is the enjoyment of each other's company and their moments of leisure in the breaks.

Director Statement

The soft and dreamy music of Atli moved me as soon as I listened to it, and I could already visualize scenes with it.

I wanted to create a contrast to the softness of the song with a story that follows a day in the life of construction workers. To explore and show sensuality, softness and friendship in a stereotypical male-dominant environment. Giving space to the small moments of pause and breath, in the midst of an everyday job.
