Beautiful Westland - Film from 1927

The National Library - Let yourself be inspired by the beautiful images from Western Norway by the film pioneer Hans Berge

Here we get to join in glacier climbing on Jostedalsbreen. Trolltindan and Romsdalshornet rise with precipitous mountain sides. Åndalsnes is described as "a pearl among the fjord towns" while farm life goes on in the mountain farms. Maybe you will plan your holiday trip here this year?

This is an edited version of the film "Vestlandet" by Hans Berge from 1927. Berge produced documentary current affairs films, but without interpreting the content, in order to enlighten the public. The films were often shown in longer film programs or as prequels during the silent film period
