The film Wave, Whip, Fan takes as a point of departure a small pond called Gulltjønn located in Gudbrandsdalen, Norway. The pond was moved a couple of hundred meters due to the construction of a new highway. The title of the film refers to tail movements performed by the male smooth newt, Triturus Vulgaris, during courtship. The description of the biotope is based on recorded material from the actual place, and conversations with among others: a biologist, an archeologist, and a zoologist who where involved in the process of moving the pond.
