THE PEOPLE BY THE FJORD (E) 61 MINS
Directed by Øyvind Sandberg

A warm documentary about the value of traditional ways of life.

In Osterfjorden, north of Bergen, we meet the farmers Ole Hjelmås and Magnhild Dyrdal who run the family farm in a traditional way. We follow them in their every day activities – in the contact with the animals, through calving and slaughter, and in the practice of old food traditions. The People by the Fjord is a warm documentary about a west coast culture that may disappear, a culture based on the interaction with the landscape that surrounds them: the fjord.
