In 1967 two young men set out to make a short film. The film was never finished, but the experience kept haunting one of the actors in the film. Many years later he hired a composer and an editor from a younger generation to finish what had been started over forty years earlier. But could the differing notions of two generations be resolved? Or would the aesthetic gap be too wide? Paradox restores to life unique and forgotten footage shot at a time when short films were almost unheard of in Iceland. The film raises questions about time, generational conflict and the fragility of a creative process. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Short Film Festival.
