Grandma Lo-Fi (2011) aka Amma Lo-Fi

Halló! Things get musical in week four of Rob and Ellie's second journey through the films of Iceland.  Subtitled 'The Basement Tapes of Sigríður Níelsdóttir', this documentary sheds light on the wonderful low-key musical life of a 70-year old lady living in a basement flat in Reykjavik. Charming and sweet, 'Grandma Lo-Fi' shows how Sigríður made her music and explores the influence she had on the Icelandic music scene. Directed by Jónsi's sister in collaboration with others, this film also features contributions from FM Belfast, Múm and Hildur Guðnadóttir.
