Icelandic landscape in The OA describing the dimension between life and death

  • This is though probably the first time the landscape describes the dimension between life and death.

In the amazing Netflix series The OA there is a scene where the main character Prairie Johnson (Britt Marling) experiences her second near-death experience and is taken to a dreamlike exotic location.  Where on the planet would you find the landscape and location that could convey a place, interpreting the dimension between life and death?  The scene is most definitely in Iceland. It is in a landscape with moss that covers lava and has a typical walking path to a tiny cabin. A cabin that was built around Iceland some decades ago, as well as up on mountain roads, for shelter and survival during extremely bad weather or a storm.  The orange color of the cabin is a signature color for the shelters and survival cabins in Iceland.  Although we have not at this moment figured out where exactly the location is, you can find a very similar place is on the ring road in Iceland west of Kirkjubærjarklaustur in the south region. It is a large area of lava covered with moss from one of Iceland's most famous and notorious eruptions, Skaftáreldar. You can also find such landscape if you drive the Reykjanes Peninsula Drive near the capital Reykjavík. Iceland has actually been chosen as a location for many films and music videos. This is though probably the first time the landscape describes the dimension between life and death.
