ActionFest Film Festival is pleased to announce the third film of its monthly screening series. HAMMER OF THE GODS, Farren Blackburn’s epic Viking tale, will enjoy its North American premiere at The Carolina Asheville at a one night only screening on Thursday, June 20 at 7:30 p.m.
Set in Viking Britain in 871 AD, HAMMER OF THE GODS is a visceral, intense tale set in a world whose only language is violence. A young Viking warrior, Steinar (Charlie Bewley), is sent by his father the Viking king on a quest to find his estranged brother, who was banished from the kingdom many years before. Steinar’s journey across terrifyingly hostile Saxon territory gradually sees him emerge as the man his father wants him to be – the ruthless and unforgiving successor to his throne.
All proceeds from this screening will be donated to HOMEWARD BOUND, celebrating its 25th anniversary of providing pathways to housing for the homeless in Asheville. The suggested donation for admission is $10. Those in attendance will receive complimentary pints of NINJA PORTER, donated by our friends at Asheville Brewing, PLUS complimentary soft drinks AND popcorn donated by Carolina Cinemas. This is truly the best entertainment value in Asheville.
