Grandma Lo-Fi – Trailer
2011. Iceland. Written and directed by Orri Jónsson, Kristín Björk Kristjánsdóttir & Ingibjörg Birgisdóttir with animation by Ingibjörg Birgisdóttir and Magnús Helgason and music by Sigríður Níelsdóttir.


The Basement Tapes of Sigríður Níelsdóttir
“At the tender age of 70 she started recording and releasing her own music straight from the living room. 7 years later Sigríður Níelsdóttir had 59 albums to her name with more than 600 songs – an eccentric myriad of catchy compositions mixing in her pets’ purrs and coos, found toys, kitchen percussion and casio keyboards.

‘Grandma Lo-fi’ is a cinematic tribute to an amazing musician and her boundless creativity.”

“The album’s 11 songs are taken from a series of recordings Beal made while living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After living in the Chicagoland area for his entire life, Beal felt compelled to be near the desert, an idea he had long romanticized.”  –Leor Galil, CHICAGO READER
