ORKA – Aldan Reyð

It was shot in the mountains of the Faroe Islands. As far as we are aware this is the first time Huldufólk are depicted in film. Huldufólk means ‘hidden people’ and they are supernatural beings which are part of Faroese folklore. Huldufólk are said to be tall and pretty, and always dressed in grey. They are neither good nor evil, dislike crosses, churches and electricity, and live in big rocks or mounds.

“In Greek, “nostalgia” literally means “the pain from an old wound”. It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards and forwards, it takes us to a place where we ache to go again.”

“[Acheron] is a feature in the ninth circle, I believe, in Dante Alighieri’s Hell,” James Cameron said in an 1986 interview. “There never was a name for the planet in the original film, so I made up one. [Acheron] seemed to be the sort of thing that some sort of colonist who had a literary bent might have named the place.”

“Most of us assume as a matter of common sense that space is nothing, that it’s not important and has no energy. But as a matter of fact, space is the basis of existence. How could you have stars without space? Stars shine out of space and something comes out of nothing just in the same way as when you listen, in an unprejudiced way, you hear all sounds coming out of silence. It is amazing. Silence is the origin of sound just as space is the origin of stars, and woman is the origin of man. If you listen and pay close attention to what is, you will discover that there is no past, no future, and no one listening. You cannot hear yourself listening. You live in the eternal now and you are that. It is rally extremely simple, and that is the way it is.”

Every place…

“Every place I have ever visited changed my life in some way, either spiritually, emotionally or intellectually. Isn’t that the point of travel?”
