Sjón – Future Library

An interview with Sjón: The third author for Future Library, 2017. We have been in Iceland filming with the celebrated Icelandic poet, novelist and lyricist Sjón, who makes the third contribution to Future Library, Katie Paterson’s 100 year artwork in Oslo, Norway. A thousand trees have been planted in Nordmarka, a forest just outside Oslo, which will supply paper for a special anthology of books to be printed in one hundred years time. Between now and then, one writer every year will contribute a text, with the writings held in trust, unpublished, until 2114. In this short film, Sjón discusses his involvement in the project.
