In 2014 Alasdair spent 3 months in the small village of Skagaströnd, Northern Iceland as part of NES Artist Residency, creating ‘Brother’ short documentary about the small teenage population who live there – shot during the notoriously harsh Icelanic winter, it proved to be a unique filmmaking experience.
