Tåke (Fog) observes the spectacle of fog through several different film- and video formats. The film explores the behaviour of Super 8 and 16mm film, as well as digital video, when it encounters a visual obstacle. The imagery is recorded on location in Oslo, the Azores, Beijing and Newfoundland. In parallel to the image, the soundtrack attempts to create an auditory fog. The film compares the loss of visibility to the loss of audible frequencies.
