This chapter presents extracts taken directly from Wahl's journal. The journal was kept in August while Wahl and Dreyer met at Hellerup to work on the indoor scenes for Ordet. Wahl describes in great detail the décor of the set and the rooms for filming as well as the set's extensive lighting plan. While some entries are long and painstakingly detailed, others are composed of sentence fragments and encompass barely more than three to four lines. The journal entries also include direct quotations from the people Wahl interacts with throughout his days.
