As we explore Nordnes through sound and radio, take a pause and discover the small town Green Bank in America where all wireless signals have been banned since the 1950s to protect the world’s largest radio telescope from interference. The town has no radio, mobile or wifi signals and has as a result attracted a number of people that claim to suffer from Electro Hypersensitivity, seeking respite from the modern world. This award winning documentary, featuring music from Borealis artist Mattie Barbier, is the story of the peculiar relationship between these people, the small town folk, and the massive radio telescope in the middle of it all.

Presented in collaboration with Cinemateket i Bergen
