This video is filmed in our old hometown Ólafsfjörður in Northen Iceland.
Our father used to work on this boat, we used to be the once waving goodbye.
“As the world spins faster and faster, and the globe becomes smaller,
Families gather to wave goodbye to their fathers, husbands and partners.
A community proclaiming; “we’ll see you soon”
To which they whisper soft goodbyes.
In the middle of the night, and embark upon the darkest ocean.
With mere moonlight guiding their way
Towards the horizon as the rest of the world fades away.
The toughest work equals the biggest tranquility,
Necessity breeds sacrifice and an empty village falls on their knees.
Not knowing is their only knowledge.”
