Vikings in Their Natural Habitat
Experience SagaScope — a 270-degree cinema with compelling original Viking content and experiences. This epic 12-minute film runs four times an hour continuously as an installation where the audience can enter and exit the venue freely. Feel the spirit of the Vikings combined with spectacular nature and harsh environments.
This film is a fact-based account placing the Viking Age in the context of European history. The Viking Age began in the late eighth century and lasted until a gradual transition into the Christian faith was completed some three hundred years later. Ultimately this film takes a time travel to leap from the Futhark alphabet and the times of the Viking runes — into the digital age and the resurgence of Viking culture and storytelling in contemporary entertainment.
