The Lindworm

In this short film, mythologist, author, and storyteller Martin Shaw tells the old Norwegian story of “The Lindworm,” a mythical creature that is part human and part snake. This ancient tale poses a timely question: what have we exiled that returns to us in fury? This telling of “The Lindworm” reminds us of the enduring wisdom of this timeless myth and of our often fraught and fearful relationship with the wild.

For an extended reflection on the intelligence that lies at the heart of myths, listen to our interview with Martin Shaw.
