The Raven Flies is Hrafn Gunnlaugsson's first Viking film, where he presents a new concept of the Viking era, destroying the stereotypical Hollywood image. Set in the Middle Ages, the film tells the story of Gestur, an Irishman, who as a child witnessed the murder of his parents by two Norwegian vikings, and the taking of his sister as a slave. Gestur follows their trail to Iceland and incites the murderers' mutual distrust and hatred. Furthermore, Gestur's sister is caught between two men: The father of her beloved son, and her brother.
Hrafn Gunnlaugsson is born in 1948. He graduated in theatre and film from the University of Stockholm in 1973 and studied film production techniques at the Swedish Dramatic Institute. Hrafn is director/composer/scriptwriter and author to all the scripts of his films and music. He began full-length film direction with FATHER'S ESTATE (1980), INTER NOS (1982) and WHEN THE RAVEN FLIES (1984) which is the first viking-film in a trilogy containing IN THE SHADOW OF THE RAVEN (1988) and THE WHITE VIKING (1991). He has also written plays, published poetry, a novel, short stories and written one-act plays.
