Deep in the wilds of rural Alabama, a spear-hunter proclaims himself the world's greatest and erects a museum dedicated to his own bizarre obsession.

LOST CONQUEST

Form: Documentary Feature, Feature, WI/MN Showcase

Director In Attendance

Long before Columbus, Viking explorers claimed the state of Minnesota. And the nice folks who live there have the ancient artifacts to prove it. LOST CONQUEST is a deconstructionist documentary about why we believe the things we believe. With swords.


Vikings! Their thirst for conquest was quenchless! Historians claim the Viking Age ended nearly a thousand years ago. But there remains one place on Earth where Vikings still rule: Minnesota! It began when Leif Ericson secretly invaded the state and claimed it for King Olaf of Norway. Today, it remains as one of the last outposts of that once-mighty empire. Or not. Archaeologists say none of this ever happened. They say Minnesota has fallen victim to the greatest practical joke of all time. They say it's better to get history right than to tell a good story. But does anyone care what they say? Because Viking culture is alive and well in Minnesota, where you can dress like a Viking, eat like a Viking or even fight like a Viking. Welcome to Minnesota, the Lost Conquest of the Viking Age!
