Filmmaker Michael Amundsen wants to change that with his independent feature film in development, Cat and the Trolls. Inspired by a Norwegian folktale and stories he heard from his grandparents who were homesteaders at the turn of the century in southeastern Montana, Amundsen has fashioned a coming of age tale about Siri Omsdal, a strong and determined 13-year old daughter of Norwegian immigrants facing the harsh challenges of life in a 12×12 tarpaper shack.
Unable to find traditional funding for this small but powerful story of faith, tenacity and redemption, Amundsen has turned to Kickstarter to find support among those people who share his desire to preserve the memory of those who came before us and who crave inspirational stories of ordinary people, living extraordinary lives.
