Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem.


Ålevangeliet / The Gospel of the Eels



Since his early childhood, Patrik and his father went fishing for eels. They waited silently for hours for this most remarkable fish in the world. Why do eels only breed somewhere in the Sargasso Sea? How is it possible they do not get lost on the long journey from Europe? And what could unravelling the eel mystery tell us about our home, the world, and human life? Do embark on an adventurous voyage through waters full of memories, existential mysteries, and… eels
