Catch the internationally-acclaimed Norwegian films, The Wave and Pathfinder. Both movies are part of Norwegian Film Institute’s 2017 Collection.
The experienced geologist Kristian Eikfjord has accepted a job offer out of town. He is getting ready to move from the city of Geiranger with his family, when he and his colleagues measure small geological changes in the underground. Kristian gets worried and his worst nightmare is about to come true, when the alarm goes off and the disaster is inevitable. With less than 10 minutes to react, it becomes a race against time in order to save as many as possible including his own family.
Pathfindfer is based on a 12th-century legend. Filled with action and drama, it tells the story of a young boy who, having seen his parents and little sister slaughtered by a raiding party of Tsjudes (a much-feared tribe from what is today Northern Russia) is taken prisoner and forced to act as a pathfinder for the raiders. Against all odds, the boy manages to trick his captors and lead them over a cliff to a violent death. Pathfinder rates a footnote in film history as it the first feature production ever to be shot in the Sami language.
