The Far Traveller – World Premiere – Q&A
A special World Premiere!
A mighty Viking explorer, Guðríður Þorbjarnardóttir transcended her humble slave origins to become the most intrepid woman traveller of the medieval world. Some 500 years before Columbus, Guðríður crisscrossed the Atlantic eight times, gave birth to the first European child in North America, and even made a pilgrimage to the Vatican. Narrated by Imelda Staunton, The Far Traveller retraces her brave steps from Greenland to Newfoundland and beyond. Weaving together exclusive interviews, vivid reenactments, and cutting-edge technology, the documentary brings the world of Viking women to life in vivid detail.
