Join us for this screening of Swedish director Amanda Kernell’s 2016 film Sameblod (Sami Blood)
Sameblod tells the story of 14-year-old Elle Marja, a reindeer-breeding Sámi girl. Exposed to the racism of the 1930s and eugenics experiments at her boarding school she starts dreaming of another life. To achieve this other life she has to become someone else and break all ties with her family and culture.
Kernell has Sami heritage through her father, and has said: ‘This film is a declaration of love to the elders in my family and their generation.’
Screening as part of Scotland and the Arctic: A Conversation
