      Róbert Ingi Douglas (born 4 June 1973 in Reykjavík) is an Icelandic film director, screenwriter and cinematographer who made his feature film debut with Íslenski draumurinn (2000).[1] That film became a sleeper hit in the summer of 2000 becoming one of Iceland's biggest box-office hits that year. Róbert Douglas followed the success of his first film with a darker film about subtle racism in Iceland's society, A Man Like Me (2002). That film proved to be another commercial success in Iceland. Douglas then made Eleven Men Out (2005), a film about an all-gay soccer team. The film has already become a success outside of Iceland and is the director's first film to do so. Before making Eleven Men Out, Douglas made a documentary for television. This Is Sanlitun (2013), a comedy feature film set in Beijing is Douglas's latest film and premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2013, it is Douglas's first English language film.
