The Fox of Bloody Woman Island

A short documentary on the North-Norwegian wooden boat builder Ulf Mikalsen from Kjerringøy.

Interesting and enticing short work on what seems like a rather eclectic and particular individual.

Being a boat builder of traditional wooden boats he is a part of the slowly waning part of the population that keeps these very very old Norwegian traditions alive.

The name Kjerringøy

n. kjerring

A woman, sometimes used derogatorily; bloody woman, somtimes endearingly; wife. Fairly rural register.

n. øy
