Translating the story of a mountain embedded in Nordic mythology, narrated by a 92 years old woman, and subtitling a montaged dense dialogue in four voices, was challenging. On November 23rd, for The Grandmother Film Festival, a beautiful program organized by artist and curator Sophia Tabatadze at Tante Nino in Rotterdam, the work was screened and performed in English for the very first time. The event was one of those very special settings, were it felt like one stepped out of reality and into a fairy tale, of some kind.
As the festival screens the same program next fall, at The Jugend Museum in Berlin, there will be additional opportunities to see the work. Because of the translation and subtitling, it is now also available to book for international screenings and/or performances.
For the occasion of the festival, Hana Wildow also printed stills from the video, available for sale for a symbolic cost of 10 euro.
