What's going on at a farm just off the aluminum smelting plant at Grundartangi? The horses have become ill since the year 2007 and 12 horses have been put to sleep. Authorities prefer to ignore the situation and will not admit to the possibility of fluorine poisoning.

Further Information

--- English description below ---

Bóndinn, Ragnheiður Þorgrímsdóttir, er frænka mín. Við erum systrabörn. Hún ólst upp á Kúludalsá á stóru búi, þar sem blandaður búskapur var stundaður. Afi okkar og amma bjuggu þar einnig. Þarna er hún fædd og amma sem var hjúkrunarkona, tók á móti henni. Ragnheiður elskar hesta sem hafa alla tíð átt stærstan þátt í lífi hennar.

Þegar ég fékk það verkefni í Kvikmyndaskólanum að gera heimildamynd, hafði ég þegar ákveðið hvað ég ætlaði að gera. Ég ætlaði að segja sögu hestanna á Kúludalsá og bóndans, frænku minnar. Segja frá baráttu þeirra við skelfilegan sjúkdóm og baráttu bóndans við yfirvöld. Hvers vegna voru þau svona treg til að viðurkenna að um flúoreitrun í hestunum væri að ræða þegar allt benti til þess. Þau hlustuðu ekki á ákall hennar. Hvalfjörður þar sem eitt sinn átti að verða blómleg framleiðsla á lífrænum matvælum er því miður orðinn alltof mengaður vegna verksmiðjanna sem reistar hafa verið á Grundartanga.

Ég fékk tvo tæknimenn úr skólanum mér til aðstoðar, þá Árna og Hauk. Þeir fengu strax mikinn áhuga fyrir verkefninu og voru sammála mér að myndin yrði að verða meira en skólamynd. Hún þyrfti að ná athygli almennings, almenningur ætti rétt á þvi að heyra hvað þarna hefur verið að gerast undanfarin ár. Hvers vegna ættu dýrin og náttúran að þurfa að víkja fyrir eiturspúandi verksmiðjum? Miklir hagsmunir eru í húfi og utanaðkomandi aðilar þyrftu að koma með tillögur að úrbótum sem ef til vill fælist í betri hreinsunarútbúnaði, því við getum sennilega ekki farið fram á það að verksmiðjunni ásamt öðrum mengandi verksmiðjum yrði lokað. Lausnina er ekki að finna í þessari mynd en hún er til að vekja alla til umhugsunar. Er þetta þess virði fyrir samfélagið og framtíðina? Er það svona heimur sem við viljum skilja eftir okkur? Maðurinn verður að læra að lifa í sátt og samlyndi við náttúruna og sýna henni virðingu.

Trailer with English subtitles:

The farmer, Ragga Þorgrímsdóttir is my cousin. Our mothers were sisters. Ragga grew up on Kúludalsá, a large farm, where mixed farming was practiced. Our grandparents lived there as well. There she was born and our grandmother who was a nurse, helped her mother with the birth. Ragga loves horses and they have always been a large part of her life.

When I was given the task at the film school to make a documentary, I had already decided what I was going to do. I wanted to tell the story of the horses at Kúludalsá and the farmer, my cousin. Tell of their struggle with catastrophic illness and the farmer‘s struggle with the authorities. Why were they so reluctant to admit that fluorine poisoning would be the case when everything pointed to it? They did not listen to Ragga‘s appeal. Hvalfjördur (The Fjord of Whales, where the farm is located) was meant to become a thriving fjord where production of organic food was to be its speciality. Today, it has unfortunately become too contaminated because of the aluminum factory. ?I got two technicians from school to my support, Arni and Haukur. They immediately showed keen interest and agreed that the documentary should become more than a school‘s project. It should catch the attention of the public. The public should be entitled to hear what has been happening in recent years. Why should animals and nature have to give way to contaminated factories? Great interests are at stake and outsiders would have to come up with suggestions for improvements, which perhaps meant better cleaning equipment, because we can’t claim that the factory along with other polluting factories would be closed down. The solution is maybe not found in this documentary, but it is to make everyone to think and face the awful fact. Is this to any worth for the community and the future? Is this a world we want to leave behind us? Man must learn to live in harmony with nature and show it respect.
