Director's Statement

John Bauer was awarded the Medal of Honor at the San Francisco World Fair in 1915. He inspired the Swedish illustrator Gustav Tenggren, who was hired by Walt Disney, to create artwork for Snow White, Pinnochio, Fantasia and Bambi. The ‘Mountain King’ title stems from an idea by the Russian choreographer Michail Fokin, the Swedish Royal Opera, to create an opera ballet inspired by Bauer’s paintings.

The pilot's aim is to illustrate the mood and environment of the time. It shows the film’s opening scene when John and Ester still very young meet at Royal Academy of art in Stockholm in autumn 1900.
