Hugljúf mynd sem fjallar um fyrsta tímabilið í lífi fjölskyldu eftir fæðingu erfingja. Á þessum tíma er mikið um heimsóknir frá fjölskyldu og vinafólki þar sem samræðurnar snúast um allt milli himins og jarðar, allt frá hversdagslegum praktískum hlutum útí vonir og væntingar varðandi um hvað framtíðin ber í skauti sér. Myndin hlaut þann heiður að vera valinn opinberlega á alþjóðlegu kvikmyndahátíðina í Rotterdam 2018!

In an apartment in Lisbon, Marta takes care of her newborn daughter while convalescing from childbirth. In these first days they receive visits from family and friends. As they get involved in the intimacy of her home they start narrating stories about marriage, childbirth, first jobs, expectations and plans for the future. In several sequences we see in Ordinary Time the unfolding of life cycle through several voices – creating fragments that mingle with the moment that Marta is living. Alongside, conjugal life and the home routines that set in will be the barometer of Marta’s inner evolution.
Premiers August 23rd in Bíó Paradís – ONLY shown for 1 week with English subtitles!!!
It was my own experience as a mother that led me to write this project. The idea came from the daily events that took place at my house, from visitors’ confessions to my family’s unexpected eccentricities, caused by the birth of a child. I wanted this film to feel closed-in, shot in the contained universe of an apartment, in an urban center, and revolving around a couple with a newborn child. But, at the same time, I wanted it to be open in the images created by the stories that are told, and for its focus to be divided between words and the caring for a baby. As if every story was anachronistically played out against the backdrop of a birth, of a woman or a man to come.
