Grandma Lo-Fi: The Basement Tapes of Sigrídur Níelsdóttir
At the age of 70, Sigríður Níelsdóttir began to record and release music from her living room. Seven years, 600 songs, and 59 albums later she has become a cult figure in the contemporary Icelandic music scene. Captured on Super 8 and 16mm film, Grandma Lo-Fi takes us on a ride into the ordinary madness and boundless creativity of this eccentric old lady. In Sigríður’s world, pigeons coo with the beat and cream whisks are transformed into flying helicopters. The film features animated music videos by Mugison, Múm, and Sin Fang of Seabear who pay tribute to their much-loved Grandma Lo-Fi and her irresistibly catchy yet unique pop tunes.
