The Father and his three sons

FilmsPosted by Bjørn Venø Sun, May 06, 2012 15:14:02

The first 9 minutes from a 20 minute performance by Bjørn Venø (Bjorn Veno) where he tells the story of how he inherited a Norwegian farm and why his two older brothers failed to prove their worth.

The story is a retelling of the Norwegian fairy tale "Askeladen som Kap åt med Trålet", where Venø has made subtle changes creating a story that layes between truth and fiction.
