About the Movie
Ancient Scandinavians, often referred to as the Vikings, might not have been as simple and barbaric as they have been portrayed for the last decades. For a Viking, the art of storytelling was highly regarded and the stories told around the fire were often filled with deeper wisdom and warnings on what would happen if humans didn’t hold up their moral standards. It’s probably not a coincidence that artists, scholars, and famous writers such as J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Richard Wagner found a lot of inspiration from their ancient legends—legends filled with elves, trolls, dwarves, and divine intervention.
In their worldview, we find a story told by a female prophetic oracle, who possessed powerful abilities to see what happened throughout time. Thus, she was able to predict the fate of the world and tell us how to behave in order to survive—a prediction stunningly similar to that of many other cultures around the world.
