About Angry Dancer

Angry Dancer is an Icelandic film production company and collective founded and controlled by Film writers and directors, we have been making short films and music videos since 2009. We don't have an agenda or a formula other than doing our best to keep challenging ourselves to be original, and be bold when it comes to story and narrative structure in the realm of professional, polished filmic objects.
