WINNER: BEST NORDIC FILM, GÖTEBORG FILM FESTIVAL

The moving story of a reindeer herding Sámi girl who severs ties with her family and her culture. An award-winner and hit at the Toronto, Sundance and Venice Film Festivals. Elle Marja is a 14-year-old girl growing up in 1930s Sweden at a time when the indigenous Sámi people were highly discriminated against. Elle is bright and ambitious, but finds herself stymied. When she is humiliated at her school and forced to endure race biology examinations, she becomes determined to build a new life for herself. To do so, she will have to take on a new identity, one that distances herself from her community and her culture. Lene Cecilia Sparrok is astonishing as the conflicted young woman in this very powerful debut by Amanda Kernell, which is inspired by the life of her grandmother.

Sámi Blood features a winning combination of strong central performances … and an intimate, empathetic approach to a period of history which is not widely known outside of Northern Europe.”– SCREENDAILY
