“I think the filming has been very successful. It is exciting, the scenery is beautiful and the story good” said Jóhann Sigurðsson, Director of Icelandair in London, in a conversation with Vísir, who a few days ago saw a trial screening of the film Út í óvissuna [Running Blind], which was filmed in Iceland this summer.

Jóhann said that the screening time of the series on British television has been scheduled for 5th, 12th and 19th January, at a popular time of the day when most television is watched, i.e. immediately after the news at 9pm. He thought that the film could be the best presentation of the country for Iceland.
