SCC Virtual Screening: When the Raven Flies
November 17, 2020
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until December 15, 2020
Hrafn Gunnlaugsson‘s first Viking film, where he presents a new concept of the Viking era, destroying the stereotype Hollywood image. Set in the middle Ages, the film tells the story of the revenge of Gestur, an Irishman who as a child witnessed the murder of his parents by two Norwegian Vikings, the foster-brothers Thór and Erik, and the taking of his sister as a slave. Gest follows their trail to Iceland and incites their mutual distrust and hatred. His sister stands between two men: the one who once ravished her, the father of her beloved son, and her brother, whom she has also learned to love, and who now wants to rescue her and to avenge their parents’ death.
Film followed by a Q & A with writer and director Hrafn Gunnlaugsson. Interviewed by author of Norse Mythology for Bostonians: A Transcription of the Impudent Edda, Rowdy Geirsson and author illustrator of Barbarian Lord, Matt Smith.
The film is 109 minutes with English subtitles, and will be available to watch online from Sunday, November 15th until Tuesday, November 15th. Cost is $15 ; $7 for SCC Members. Click here to watch trailer and learn more.
