Winterland is directed by Hisham Zaman who in 2005 produced the Amanda and Grimstad winner "Bawke" (best short film)

With warmth and a humorous view, the director depicts the story of Renas, a well-adjusted Kurdish refugee who lives in a godforsaken spot in Northern Norway. Soon he will marry his special chosen princes, Fermesk, a beautiful girl from a good family who will arrive by plane from Northern Irak. But when Fermesk finally arrives she does not look like the lady at the photos at all, and she is totally different from what he has imagined. He does neither appear as the man she has dreamt about. The first love is over and they both regrets, but now they only have each other, under the same roof in the Winterland.
