2016, Nordisk Film AB, 110 min, Sweden/Norway/Denmark, Dir: Amanda Kernell

Fourteen -year-old Elle Marja (talented newcomer Lene Cecilia Sparrok) is a reindeer-herding Sámi girl growing up in the 1930s. Exposed to the era’s racial biology examinations at her boarding school, she starts dreaming of another life - but to achieve it, she will have to break all ties with her family and culture. “A moving, classically rendered coming-of-age tale set against the scarring social prejudices of the 1930s, this handsome debut feature from Swedish- Sámi writer-director Amanda Kernell robustly blends adolescent fears that resonate across borders and generations with a fascinatingly specific, rarely depicted cultural context.” - Guy Lodge, Variety.

In Swedish and Sámi with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
