Shamanic Movie Recommendation #2

The hollywood movie from 2011 Thor, directed by Kenneth Branagh & starring many renowned actors, is my second recommendation for a movie with a shamanic theme. This story, inspired by the Thor graphic novel series by Marvel comics, has many shamanic elements. The protagonist is the Norse god Thor, cast out of Asgard for an act of arrogance by his father Odin. He travels the Bifrost rainbow bridge from the upper worlds of the Norse pantheon to planet Earth. He struggles to find his way in a new world, then at last restored to power in a heroic effort to save his kin from the Frost Giants in battle with Odin’s warriors. He spends much of the movie traveling between the worlds & using his inner senses to restore balance to his home.
