Trailer Watch: Days of Gray

Days of Gray, the Iceland-set debut picture from New York production company Bicephaly Pictures, will have its world premiere October 4 at, appropriately, the Reykjavik International Film Festival. The film will screen at the historic Gamla Bio theater with the seven-piece orchestral band Hjaltalin performing their original score.

The filmmakers have blogged for Filmmaker about the production of the film, and now they are debuting here their first trailer, posted above. Here’s the synopsis from the film’s Vimeo page:

It is a world without language. A world where one is raised to respect the rules. Every possession is strictly utilitarian. All must wear masks when venturing from home. Men must protect society from outsiders who do not follow the rules. Faith is dead. Hope is dead. Joy is dead.

Only one boy (Davíð Laufdal Arnarsson) questions the verity of what he has been taught. He scavenges for lost objects from distant times, he shares warmth with his younger Sister (Viktoría Rós Antonsdóttir), and he dares to befriend an outsider – the Girl (Diljá Valsdóttir).

The Boy knows it is only a matter of time before he must become a hunter like his father, eliminating outsiders. He must decide whether to continue living in a society of fear or choose his own destiny.
