FJORD

"Juryen ble grepet av dette poetiske filmdiktet, ikke bare på grunn av det briljante kamera-arbeidet, men også for dets spesielle evne til å fortelle en historie uten ord."

Juryens begrunnelse for å tildele FJORD prisen for Beste foto ved filmfestivalen ENVIROFILM i Slovakia, 2011.


I 2005 ble Nærøyfjorden i Sogn ført opp på Unescos verdensarvliste som et av verdens mest verneverdige landskap.
”Den unike naturskjønnheten kommer av de trange dalene med bratte bergsider som strekker seg fra 500 meter under vannflaten til 1400 meter over havet. Et utall fosser kaster seg utfor stupbratte fjellvegger. Tallrike elver renner ned fra takkete fjell, breer og innsjøer gjennom løv- og barskog, ned til fjorden. Et stort mangfold av andre naturfenomer på land og i vann forsterker naturopplevelsen. Rester fra eldre, nå for det meste nedlagte gårdsbruk og støler, tilfører det dramatiske naturlandskapet en dimensjon som utfyller og øker den samlede verdien av området.”

I 2006 utnevnte National Geographic Traveler Magazine fjorden til verdens best bevarte verdensarvområde.

Filmen FJORD skildrer Nærøyfjorden i fire årstider. Lyset er sentralt i filmen. Det er lyset som modellerer og skaper konturer og skiftninger i dette dramatiske fjordlandskapet.

Fjord er den første i en trilogi av frittstående filmer fra norsk kystlandskap.

FJORD


"The jury was captivated by this poem made of pictures not only because of the brilliant camera work, but also because of its special ability to tell a story without words."

The international film jury, Envirofilm, Slovakia, 2011, awarding FJORD The Prize for the Best Camera Work.


Since 2005, the Nærøyfjord has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
"The Nærøyfjord and Geirangerfjord areas are considered to be among the most scenically outstanding fjord areas on the planet. Their outstanding natural beauty is derived from their narrow and steep-sided crystalline rock walls that rise up to 1400 m direct from the Norwegian Sea and extend 500 m below sea level. Along the sheer walls of the fjords are numerous waterfalls while free-flowing rivers rise up through deciduous and coniferous forest to glacial lakes, glaciers and rugged mountains. There is a great range of supporting natural phenomena, both terrestrial and marine such as submarine moraines and marine mammals. Remnants of old and now mostly abandoned transhumant farms add a cultural aspect to the dramatic natural landscape that complements and adds human interest to the area."

In 2006 National Geographic Traveler Magazine rated Nærøyfjord as the world's number one natural heritage site along with Geirangerfjord.

The film FJORD is a personal interpretation of this unique landscape. The film has no dialogue.
