Thyland

Vibeke Bryld, Denmark, 2021

72 min.DK/Documentary

A film about the invisible life in the North of Denmark. Here, nature is rougher and faith is stronger than in the rest of the country. The hybrid documentary moves through the living, breathing organism of the heath, the sea and the woods. Guided by a voice from the past and accompanied by the testimonies and rituals of the present, the film invites you to tune into a different frequency – one, where you can hear the call from the sea, the pain of the woods, and feel the restlessness of the moor. The story is tightly bound to the landscape, but is also a universal tale about the need to belong and overcome death, letting the invisible life of myth and nature unfold in all its magical potential.
