Some of you may have felt its exotic pull. Nicolas Gouin certainly has. He grew up on the south shore of Montreal, but ever since he took a trip to Iceland, as part of a film crew, he's been hooked. A few of his photographs of Iceland are currently on display at the World Press Photo exhibition at the Marché Bonsecours.
But he's also made a film about another Icelandic community - in Gimli, Manitoba (Gimli harbour, above).
New Iceland airs at the Cinematheque in Montreal on Monday. Nicolas Gouin spoke about this first chapter of his Icelandic sagas with our guest host, Geeta Nadkarni.
