Vancouver International Children's Festival presents:
Through improvisation and imaginative devising the elementary and secondary students from Smithers, BC, have created a contemporary retelling of classic Norwegian folklore. The film follows a group of children who must travel through magical worlds to find their friend, the Prince, who has been captured by the evil Troll Princess. Will the gifts from the mystical creatures of the lands be enough to help them on their quest?
Under the creative direction of Susan Bertoia, this project which focuses on the methods of collaboration and intergenerational storytelling was commissioned by the Vancouver International Children’s Festival.
