Sami Blood (Sameblod)

Part of the European Perspectives Strand


Elle Marja is a teenage Sami girl forced to attend a brutal boarding school for Sami children where they are treated more like cattle at a market. Disgusted at how she is treated and made to feel, Elle Marja is desperate to escape the confines of her culture and race. Thriving on being away from her home life of herding reindeers in the wintery mountains, she dreams of escape. When one night she encounters a group of Swedish soldiers partying in the woods, her dreams slowly turn to reality...
