Dateline

Internet Love in a Strange Land
SBS February 13, 2018

Nothing grows here, it's 15 degrees Celsius in summer, there are only three traffic lights - would you move to the Faroe Islands for love? We met Bjorn shortly before his cousin's wedding - he'd just returned home after spending 50 days at sea near Greenland. He's in his 30s and single, but as he says, "I'd rather be alone with my dog than with the wrong woman." Bjorn is one of the main characters in this week's Dateline film Internet Love in a Strange Place - which explores the shortage of women living in the Faroe Islands, and the struggles of local men trying to find a partner - the story is an unusual alchemy of love, isolation and the internet. In the Faroe Islands, love and technology are irrevocably shifting the cultural make-up and ethnic identity of this haunting place.
