The Giant Who Slept for Ten Thousand Years


Join me on a journey through time! Long before humans, in an icy fjord of the northernmost island, the last family of giants roam the land. Travelling inside and through the gorges and hills, they shape the landscape with their every step. Time passes, plants grow and fall – the mountains hide riches deep underneath the soil. People discover the fjord and cut the earth open for its wealth. Can they live together with giants and trolls peacefully?

A heart-warming story about our relationship to nature, friendship and the places we call home.

The story is inspired by a Swedish folktale of the same title translated by Einar Rosenborg.
