The 2020 documentary Against the Current follows kayaker Veiga Grétarsdóttir as she attempts to become the first person to paddle around Iceland counterclockwise. This means, as the film’s title suggests, she must paddle the 2,000 plus kilometers against the current. The film also captures parts of Grétarsdóttir’s personal journey as a transgender woman. “I’ve dreamed of it for a long time,” Grétarsdóttir says in the film, “but having gone through everything, the transitioning, I decided to live my life, make my dreams come true.” The poignant documentary, which showcases the Nordic island nation’s striking coastline, is available for online viewing through the Vermont International Film Foundation.
