Metalhead film at Toronto Film Festival

Here we have another metal-themed film that looks really interesting. Metalhead is the latest film from Icelandic writer and director Ragnar Bragason and was just included at the Toronto Film Festival.

According to a synopsis from the festival, Metalhead centres around young heroine Hera who, after her older brother’s accidental death, rebuilds herself in his image – as a heavy metal devotee and musician. What is implied in the trailer is that Hera rapidly becomes more rebellious and possibly destructive as a result of her brother’s tragic death.

I am particularly interested to see how Bragason portrays the ways in which Hera’s character deals with her grief and anger through the catharsis of heavy metal. Definitely one to look out for!
