THE HIGHLAND PROJECT

CLIENT |  THE HIGHLAND PROJECT
The interior of Iceland is usually referred to as the central highland or simply the highland. It covers 40,000 km2 of the island (103,000 km2), and forms one of the largest territories in Europe which has never been inhabited or cultivated. The highland is considered one of the last great wilderness areas in Europe. The Highland Project seeks to protect this globally vital environment as a whole by reaching an agreement to give it a national park status.
Al produced a broadcast length documentary that captured the unbreakable link between Icelanders and the highland - the physical, spiritual and emotional relationship between humans and nature and how this relationship is the bedrock of Icelandic national identity.
