Includes an 8 page booklet featuring an overview of the animated film's story and imagery.
Alexander Stitt's animated film "Grendel Grendel Grendel" is based on the 1971 novel by John Gardner who adapted and expanded the classic, centuries-old poem, "Beowulf".
Along with composer Bruce Smeaton, and a cast of actors including Peter Ustinov, Julie McKenna, Keith Michell and Arthur Dignam, they have breathed life into this classic tale. As director Alexander Stitt himself wrote about Grendel, we didn't know much about him in the original poem, except that he "lives beneath a lake with his Mum and eats people."
