Their film production has though a rather sporadic history and is of a quite late date. The purpose of this study is thus to enquite into the following Faroese feature films, Bye Bye Bluebird, Ludo and Dreams by the Sea and their depiction of the following aspects of collective identity: ”national”, religious, linguistic and gender identity in terms of gender roles. National is in quotation marks because of the Faroe Islands being a part of the Danish kingdom. This essay intends to gain an in-depth understanding of the researched phenomenon through hermeneutic research. It was executed by use of narrative analysis, together with the theoretical framework: identity theories, whereafter these were applied to the films. The result shows that the Faroe Islanders are portrayed as conservative with regard to the patterns of gender roles, but also their Christian beliefs. (Less)
