This very special film was invented
by the brittish secret service, MI5, in the middle
of the thirties. It was top secret and known only
to a handfull of agents of the inner circle of MI5.
By a coincidence the young danish farmerson Preben
Sörensen, got his hands on these two rolls of
films during his military service. Upon his arrival
from his service he placed, what he believed to be,
two perfectly normal black and white films in a drawer.
They were kept there until he a few years later, after
the end of world war two, bought a camera, a new modern
Leica III. Sörensen had by then inherited the
farm. One of these days he remembered the films in
the drawer. He loaded his camera and went out to get
some pictures of his pride, the new plough.
Preben died recently, 82 years of age. He was until
his death in a very good state and kept his sanity
intact. I had the opportunity to meet him at several
occations during the 80-ties and 90-ties and we became
very close friends. During our last talk he told me
this remarkable story that he so far had told no one.
Partly he made this decission because he was afraid
of the punishment he might get for his dishonest way
in retriving the films, and partly because he´d
been a witness to something he shouldn´t have
seen. Preben then showed me an old yellowish copy
of what was supposed to be a picture of his plough,
and said to me;
For as long as my parents and I have owned this
farm there has been neiher sheep nor trolls on that
medow. And they were definatly not there when I first
took that picture of my new plough!
Preben sent me the films just before he died. Both
the exposed and the unexposed. He had kept them buried
in his garden since 1949.
I´m lookin forward to present more pics from
Prebens exposed film and to shoot my own from the
This future job is depending on you keeping your mouth
shut. Promise not to say anything to MI5 or any other
similar authority. Nor my shrink.
