Written by Jon Gustafsson and Karolina Lewicka.
When Canadian director Sturla Gunnarsson and his crew set upon Iceland to film Beowulf & Grendel
in 2004, they expected the usual complications involved in making a movie, but what they encountered—
including natural disasters, financial crises and ill-fated pagan blessings—made them believe
the Norse Gods were actually against them. A documentary about “sheer demented ambition”
(Sarah Polley), so incredible, you have to see it to believe it.
Filmmaker Jon Gustafsson, hired to play a small part as one of Beowulf’s warriors, had lots of time
on the set with lots of time to kill, so he jumped at every opportunity to capture the story behind the
scenes with his video camera. The results are truly astounding! Produced by John Gustafsson and
The Landscaper’s Daughter
NY Premiere—U.S.A.—23 minutes.
Written and Directed by Reeves Lehmann (USMC Vietnam Veteran ’68).
A high school history teacher assigns his class to interview
a combat veteran as part of their study of wars. Sarah, the
daughter of a local landscaper and Vietnam Veteran,
approaches her father, who doesn’t take well
to the assignment.
This film is dedicated to all combat veterans.
