What if a country rewrote its constitution using ordinary citizens and social media? That’s just what happened in Iceland in 2012. Blueberry Soup is an extraordinary documentary at the epicentre of one of this centuries most inspiring democratic movements: “The Icelandic People’s Movement”. The film is a deeply touching account of an empowered nation re-envisioning democracy through the drafting of its constitution. If given a second chance, how does a nation rebuild?

Blueberry Soup has played a role in garnering international attention for the Icelandic experiment in civic engagement, inspiring a series of new movements abroad. The film has been shown in universities around the world and continues to be the primary archive of the Icelandic constitutional reform process.
