It is our honor and distinct pleasure of inviting you and your friends to the premiere of the documentary A Name is a Name by Icelandic/Norwegian cinematographer Sigurjon Einarsson. The premiere will take place at the Washington D.C. Jewish Community Center on February 1, 2010 beginning at 7:00 p.m. The director and producer will be present for questions and answers and a reception will follow.
A cross between a documentary and a feature film, A Name is a Name is instead, a classic “road film,” made largely on the proverbial and literal road over a period of seven months in the Republic of Macedonia. At its heart, the film is about a group of people who call themselves Macedonians and what it means to them to be known as such.
Sigurjon Einarsson was born in Iceland, but has lived in Norway for the past 22 years. He has made numerous TV programs and documentary films, as well as over 300 TV commercials and music videos, productions that, over the course of 25 years of filmmaking, have taken him around the world. In addition, Sigurjon has been involved with the music industry, working closely with Morten Harket for the past 18 years, with whom he produced “East Timor,” an account of the East Timor independence struggle.
