Bjellena fra Ål

Video. 2021 and ongoing.

The fictional documentary project Bjellene fra Ål investigates a rumour about a folktradition in the small town of Ål in Norway. The first video in the series is a fake interview in a bar with a woman who claims there is a sect in Ål consisting of men which wander up the hills of Ål naked, only wearing a cow bell around their genitals. The traces leads to one of the towns hotels where the sect is supposed to reside. The film is the first in a series of short films which will trace the rumour to its source.
