odel / the odelsrett

En mann, hans fotosamling og en lov fra middelalderen

Odel er en film om en gammel norsk lov og en manns personlige fotosamling. Odelsretten gir familie førsterett på kjøp dersom familieland legges ut for salg. Hvis landet allerede er solgt, har de rett til tilbakekjøp innen en viss tid. Gjennom en privat samling av bilder ser filmen på i hvilken grad en lov kan påvirke en familie, et land og et individ.

A man, his photo collection and a law from the middle ages

The Odelsrett is a film about an ancient Norwegian law and a man’s personal photo collection. The Odelsrett gives kin the rights of prior purchase if family land is offered for sale. If the land has already been sold, they have rights of repurchase within a certain time. Through a private collection of photographs the film looks at the extent to which a law can influence a family, a country and an individual.
