Storyline

Beneath the quiet veneer of Iceland lies an invisible nation of Hidden People. This fascinating phenomenon, rarely discussed with outsiders, not only pervades Icelandic culture, but also impacts its infrastructure (e.g., road construction and buildings). This enlightening journey, through Iceland's celestial and mysterious environment, suspends one's state of reality-forcing you to question your own perceptual limitations and the mysteries of the natural world. Delving further into the stories of the hidden people, it is impossible not to consider the impact of the geographic position and isolation of this mysterious, celestial island of Iceland. Winter's darkness allows the dazzling and supernatural Northern Lights to pervade the country with its amorphous shapes; casting brilliant colors of yellow, pink, and green downward to the land below. Black lava rocks, green mossy rocks, geysers, volcanoes, and glaciers all play their role in this mystical landscape, where the wind, snow and ... Written by Nisha Inalsingh

Lyrical, stunningly beautiful, and delightfully otherworldly, HULDUFOLK 102 expolres the relationship between traditional folk culture and modernity in its examination of the Icelandic belief in "hidden people," the huldufolk of the film's title. Vestiges of the country's Scandinavian and Celtic forebears, the huldufolk occupy a niche somewhere between Tolkien's elves and contemporary neopagan nature spirits. The interviews with Icelandic natives range from transportation department officials (road construction and maintenance take the huldufolk into account), journalists, university professors, politicians, priests and a sorceror. At the screening I attended, the SRO crowd gasped at the gorgeous, eerie footage of Iceland's's natural wonders -- glaciers, volcanos, seascapes -- but also laughed delightedly at the ultimate strangeness and sheer wonder of a world of belief that defies our own mundane preconceptions of the supernatural.
