The narratives of the local elders

As a central part of the work in the Transparent Boundaries project a short film has been developed which documents local fishermen and net makers as they reflect on the past, the loss of craftsmanship, cultural identity and the tremendous changes which society has undergone – as well as the subsequent consequences for the people in places like Hirtshals.

The film was exhibited in Nordsøen Oceanarium as part of the exhibition Fish Tales : Fiskeskrøner.

Som en helt central del af arbejdet i Transparent Boundaries projektet er der udarbejdet et videodokument med lokale fiskere og vodbindere, der kaster nutidige øjne på fortiden, tab af håndværk, kulturel selvforståelse og samfundsudviklingens voldsomme konsekvenser for lokaliteter og kulturer som den i Hirtshals.

Videoen blev udstillet som en central del af udstillingen Fish Tales : Fiskeskrøner i Nordsøen Oceanarium.
