Story


"Pathfinder" is based on findings of 1000 year-old Norse artifacts discovered in New York.

"Pathfinder" centers on a boy left behind by the Norsemen fifteen years prior to their return to the New World. The child is raised by American Indians. When Norsemen storm the eastern shores, once again waging a barbaric campaign, they slaughter the tribe that adopted him. Now 25, the man decides to stop the Norsemen's trail of death and destruction. In the process, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery as he comes to terms with his heritage.

The unique tale was inspired by the mythological elements in Nils Gaup's film "Ofelas," (1987) and the renewed interest of this little known historical account of the first invasion on American ground, 492 years before the arrival of Columbus.

"Pathfinder" depicts what has never been seen on screen -- the clash between American Indians and Norsemen, and the consequences of that encounter.
