First-time writer-director Aleksander L. Nordaas explores the myth of the "huldra" -- beautiful, long-haired women with animal tails -- in Thale (pronounced "tall-eh"), a "hauntingly atmospheric supernatural drama," says Festival Programmer Colin Geddes, with a "tantalizing" premise (TWITCH).
Below are the poster and trailer for Thale, which plays this year's Toronto International Film Festival within the Vanguard programme.
Further information about Aleksander L. Nordaas' Thale can be found on the Festival website, as well as on the Thale website, Facebook page, and IMDB page.
