Bataki's wonderful journey through the museum

The dramatized screening is led by the raven Bataki, from Selma Lagerlöf's "Nils Holgersson's wonderful journey through Sweden". Bataki, beloved according to Lagerlöf's book, Falun, and even better suited to show Dalarna's history than he. Bataki takes us on a tour around the museum and takes a look at the history of Dalarna and tells us about what is typical of the current time and also shows how society changes over time. There is not just one story, but many stories to tell. Bataki thinks about how different events in history have affected us, how we would have lived if we lived in times other than our own. What would we have learned if we went to school 100 years ago, how would we have dressed if we lived two hundred years ago. Where did you go to the toilet three hundred years ago? Bataki also tells about her "mother" Selma Lagerlöf and her work "Nils Holgersson's wonderful journey through Sweden" and what Sweden she portrays and how it differs from today's society.
