The Faroe Islands

Faroe Islands, The

"Highly Recommended! This documentary is an excellent introduction to these remote Nordic islands with their industrious, inventive and independent population." -National Media Review
The Faroe Islands are a group of eighteen habitable volcanic islands located off the coast of Northern Europe, northwest of Scotland and pretty much halfway between Iceland and Norway. The islands make up only about 540 square miles in area and have no major lakes or rivers; however, at any given place one is never more than three miles away from a coastline; thus the ocean plays a vital role to the people who live here, most of whom are ethnic Faroese, of Norse and Celtic descent. Though their numbers are small, between 46,000 - 50,000 people, the Faroese have an independent spirit; the nation has been an autonomous province of the Kingdom of Denmark since 1948. This enlightening documentary offers us a rare chance to see these beautiful islands and to meet these self-sustaining people who not only have their own unique language and culture, but also share a spirit and determination to utilize the natural resources around them and to experience life to the fullest.
