Jón Baldvin Hannibalsson is retired. He lives in a modest house in the country. But when we meet him, he is composing a speech and packing his bags. He is on his way to be the guest of honour in Lithuania at the anniversary celebrations for January 13, 1991. That was the day the Soviet Union used force to try to put down the independence movement in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, and to topple their legitimately elected leaders. At the time, Hannibalsson was Iceland’s foreign minister – and the first western politician who publicly supported recognising the three new nations. Director Rögnvaldsson tells the story of this decisive chapter in history, which contributed to the collapse of the Soviet Union. With the protagonists speaking out, the drama of those events – and the key role the tiny country of Iceland played – becomes palpable.
Director Ólafur Rögnvaldsson
