The Navigator - A Medieval Odyssey Film Poster


Vincent Ward's imaginative fusion of history, myth and fantasy uses striking visuals to tell its powerful allegorical tale. It is Cumbria, 1348, the year of the Black Death. A young boy, Griffin, has a prophetic vision of how to save his village from the encroaching plague - they must make a tribute to God by placing a spire on a distant cathedral before dawn. A small band of brave believers start on a journey in search of the cathedral. They climb down a deep tunnel, seemingly endless, but emerge in twentieth-century Auckland, New Zealand - having been through the middle of the earth! Once there the band of medieval travellers have to cope with the bizarre modern world whilst completing their quest.
