Icelandic filmmaker Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson is best known for directing 2011's Either Way, remade by David Gordon Green as Prince Avalanche.

His latest black comedy, Under the Tree, explores the increasingly fractured nature of western society, using a neighbourhood dispute over a tree to explore the wider issue of our current culture wars. 

The film stars Steinthor Hroar Steinthorsson, Edda Björgvinsdóttir and Sigurdur Sigurjónsson.

Under the Tree is in UK cinemas August 10th. Check out the new trailer from Eureka Entertainment and let us know what you think of it.

The official synopsis reads:

This dark surburban satire tells the story of a man who is accused of adultery by his ex-fiancée and forced to move in with his parents. While he fights for custody of his four-year-old daughter, he is gradually sucked into a bitter dispute between his parents and their neighbours regarding an old and beautiful tree that casts a shadow on the neighbours’ deck. As the dispute intensifies – property is damaged, pets mysteriously go missing, security cameras are being installed and there is a rumour that the neighbour was seen with a chainsaw.
