The Normans - a film about the vikings

Poul Gernes, Per Kirkeby, Denmark, 1976

89 min.DK/Feature

Paul Gernes and Per Kirkeby are internationally renowned contemporary painters and sometime dabblers in experimental filmmaking. Their concerted effort to do a feature fiction about the Vikings, based on historical-archeological reserach, has the narrative framework of a present-day guided tour through a number of sagas and legends, primarily those told by Danish chronicler Saxo (1150-1210)

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
