Kreppa Babies

Masbedo   |   2010   |   3 min   |   Excerpt

"Kreppa Babies" by Masbedo is a moving portrayal of life in Iceland, where aspects of both an anthropological and a folkloristic nature are condensed: the illusion of affluence spread at all levels of society, myths and pantheistic faith and the ancestral customs of a community imbued with a strong sense of identity and belonging. All this forms the cultural and economic back-drop for a whole generation of Kreppa Babies, literally the “children of the crisis”, taking their first steps on a terrain that has become inhospitable and treacherous due to the recent socio-economic upheaval worldwide.
