Following the capers and misfortunes of Icelandic female punk collective The Post Performance Blues Band, Àlfrún Örnólfsdóttir’s feature debut Band blurs the lines between fact and fictitious fun.

Bandmates Álfrún, Saga and Hrefna give themselves one year to make it big or leave the business for good, with the film documenting their make-it-or-break-it pursuit for unattainable fame. Spinal Tap meets Flight of the Conchords meets Bjork in Örnólfsdóttir’s sometimes deep but always hilarious docu-allegory, with its cast of loveable rogues ‘satisfying a craving for genuine fun, immediacy and not giving a f**k.’ - The Reykjavik Grapevine.

Please note that the film is available to stream from March 15 at 20:30 to March 18 at 20:30 (viewing window applies).

Thanks to Alief
