Jokkmokk Winter Fair 2015

This is an annual market in Jokkmokk, Swedish Lapland, dating back more than 400 years.
It lasts for about a week and you can enjoy it in many ways. There’s lots of Sami handicraft, food, clothes and candy to buy. Performances, exhibitions and lectures to attend. And if nothing else, you probably bump into somebody you know. Maybe a friend that you only meet once a year here in Jokkmokk every February.

Usually it’s cold during the market week but this year the temperature was barely below zero. At least the second last day when we visited. Instead it was very windy and the snow was piling up on the roads when we drove back home.

My film The Last Generation? was shown at the fair, and before the screening we had a couple of hours to walk around.
