Traces Grow Out of Words

Sporini vaksa úr orðum

Directed by Katrin Ottarsdóttir
Faroe Islands, Denmark, 2009


Gentle and tough. Fragile and existentially hard hitting. Those are a few of many labels you can put on Joanes Nielsen (f. 1953) – a fisherman, workman, socialist, nationalist, and – not least – writer and poet from the Faroe Islands.
