In October 2008, after running a Ponzi scheme to rival any in history, the three main banks in Iceland collapsed, driving a nation into bankruptcy; causing thousands of people to lose their jobs, and many more all their personal savings and dreams. How does a nation, briefly one of the richest and most developed countries in the capitalist world, react to a total economic collapse? Iceland: Year Zero is not an economic analysis of the bankruptcy of a nation, but rather a film about the aftermath - examining the impact on the people who have to deal with an economic catastrophe.

Panel discussion with Sigrún Davíðsdóttir (Journalist) and Liam Graham (Economist, UCL)
