The volcanoes were smoking and the sunsets beyond red when I flew to Iceland to visit the set of director Sturla Gunnarsson’s epic film, Beowulf and Grendel, in 2005—and wrote an article for Montage, the magazine of the Directors Guild of Canada.

The film stars Gerard Butler, Stellan Skarsgård and Sarah Polley.
