Doc ‘The Last Autumn’ Bows Digitally June 30 From Film Movement

The documentary The Last Autumn will be released on VOD and digital June 30 from Film Movement.

Centuries ago, humans first arrived with their livestock on the isolated Icelandic coast — a remote land pushed up against the inhospitable Arctic Ocean that has been home to generations of farmers. Úlfar and Oddny (an aging Icelandic couple) are among this legacy, completely in rhythm with the land and tuned in to the cyclical nature of farm work. As autumn approaches, and their children and grandchildren arrive from the cities to assist in the seasonal sheep herding, one thing becomes clear — this will be the family’s final descent from the surrounding hills with their flock. With life in rural Iceland changing and Úlfar and Oddny growing older, the family understands this is the end of an era.
