Icelandic director Baltasar Kormákur chose a home designed by famous Icelandic architect Högna Sigurðardóttir to be the setting for his new thriller, Eiðurinn. 

The film tells the story of a wealthy doctor, played by Baltasar Kormákur, whose life takes a turn when his daughter, played by Hera Hilmarsdóttir,  begins a relationship with a drug dealer.

The house, located in Bakkaflöt in Garðabær is the setting for much of the storyline. 

Architect Högna Sigurðardóttir was born in 1929 in the Westman Islands. She was the first Icelander to study at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Shortly after graduating in 1960, she designed a residential building in the Westman Islands, becoming the first woman to design a building in Iceland. 

Eiðurinn premieres in Iceland on September 9th.
