Severed Ways: The Norse Discovery of America

Those of you living in the New York area should be sure to check out Severed Ways, on show at the Angelika Film Center this March. Set in 1007 AD, Severed Ways follows two flaxen-haired Vikings into the heart of the North American wilderness, struggling for survival as they burn crosses, shack up with the natives, and headbang to Morbid Angel, Popul Vuh, Burzum, Dimmu Borgir, Queens of the Stone Age, Brian Eno, Old Man's Child, and Judas Priest. Already on its way to becoming a cult classic, and so far out in left field that it might not even be a movie at all...

Directed by Tony Stone (Heathen Films).
