The Icelandic Canadian Frón Presents: Spooks and Spirits.                     From the director of Seagull’s Laughter. what do you do when your recently deceased father comes back to settle unfinished business?

When Anna and her boyfriend Ingi decide to sell the house Anna inherited from her late father Ofeig, the father’s ghost appears and makes one thing perfectly clear: his house won’t be sold!
Prospective buyers are chased away by very strange events, which confirm that Ofeig, as a ghost, is no different from what he was in life: a charming, but egoistic, alcoholic womanizer. Ingi tries to exorcise Ofeig, but the poltergeist world proves a tricky one. Instead of getting rid of Ofeig, another ghost is raised – a jealous former girlfriend of Ofeig. The dead lovers’ bickering makes life in the house intolerable, the ghosts get ever more forceful, and selling the house is out of the question. But ghosts can get too greedy. When Ofeig tries to drag an innocent lady into his dimension, the situation calls for drastic measures if peace is ever to be restored!
This comic “ghost story,” Starring Gisli Örn Garðarson, Laddi, and Ilmar Kristjánsdóttir, was written and directed by Ágúst Guðmundsson (Seagull‘s Laughter). In Icelandic with English subtitles. This showing is made possible through the Icelandic National League of North America‘s Donald K. Johnson Icelandic Film Series..
