Produced by Nordic Film Production, the prizewinning film will mark the opening of the Sámi centennial week Tråante 2017. The screening will take place on 5 February at the Nova Cinema in Trondheim, where invited guests and others are welcome. A limited number of tickets will be released for sale at 12 noon on 21 November 2016. More information will come; www.isfi.no and www.tråante2017.no
In making Sámi blood, Amanda Kernell has made an impressive debut in the international film world, winning prizes at the Venice Film Festival and more recently at the Tokyo Film Festival, where the female lead, Lene Cecilie Sparrok, also won the prize for best female actor. The film has received accolades from all over the world, including glowing reviews in the film magazines after being screened at “A” list film festivals.
For the International Sámi Film Institute, it is of great importance that SÁMI BLOOD comes “home” to the south-Sámi area and to Sámi audiences.
This is the first south-Sámi feature film ever made. Moreover, it has been directed by a woman. One of the initiators of the first Sámi National Congress, held in Trondheim 100 years ago, was also a woman. Let us gather in the spirit of Elsa Laula for a moving film experience in Trondheim.
We are looking forward to the centennial screening, a collaboration between the International Sámi Film Institute, Tråante 2017, and Storytelling Media.
Venue and time:
The event will take place at Nova Kino at 6 p.m. on 5 February 2017.
