The Saga of Biôrn directed and written by Benjamin J. Kousholt
This clever animated short film, which I watched using the library’s free IndieFlix service, chronicles a Viking named Biorn determined to reach Valhalla, the desired debaucherous afterlife destination for brave Vikings that have died honorably in battle. While Biorn seeks out opportunities for battle and ultimately a brave death, he has a knack for finding situations where life doesn’t work out according to his plan. In addition to being beautifully animated and quite humorous, this short film has a clever ending you won’t see coming.
