Øivind Tangstad grew up on the slopes of the Hardangervidda, Europe’s highest plateau and one of its greatest wildernesses. He took inspiration from one of the most thrilling and heroic adventure stories of the modern era, where 12 Norwegian Resistance members skied 450km across the plateau to prevent the creation of an atomic bomb.
To mark the 80th anniversary of this tale, which has become folklore in the Hardanger, Øivind is leading an international expeditionary team to retrace their footsteps, from the assault on the Rjukan valley, across Europe’s wildest plateau, and over the Swedish border hundreds of kilometres away.
‘Hardangerfolk’ is a documentary which shows how, at a time when war and oppression are once again gripping Europe, this inspirational story is more relevant than it has ever been.
