The amazing video for Aldan reyð by Heiðrik á Heygum. It was shot in the mountains of the Faroe Islands. As far as we are aware this is the first time Huldufólk are depicted in film. Huldufólk means ‘hidden people’ and they are supernatural beings which are part of Faroese folklore. Huldufólk are said to be tall and pretty, and always dressed in grey. They are neither good nor evil, dislike crosses, churches and electricity, and live in big rocks or mounds.
