Quiet Storm is a feature film based on the director’s own experience back in the 1970s. A young girl breaks away from her petit bourgeois home and her piano lessons to lead an entirely new life, as one of the personnel at an institution for juvenile delinquents in a remote part of Northern Iceland. It is the 1970s and the young people in charge of the place are heavily into flower power, sitar music and solving problems through frank counselling sessions with the delinquents. However, the hippies, who themselves despise authority, soon find their own authority under attack from the rebellious youngsters, especially after the arrival of a mysterious young girl. Then a violent incident occurs that will have a decisively detrimental effect on relations at the institution. The film is artfully shot by Norwegian cinematographer Sven Krøvel and uses the desolate nature of the place to great effect.
