Sweden like to think of itself as the conscience of the world, but how is it treating its own indiginous population?
There’s not many feature length, modern documentaries about the Sami and this is definitely one of the very few about forest Sami.
Filmed in Råne river valley between Luleå and Gällivare.
Henrik Andersson from Gällivare forest Sami community in Swedish Lapland share his thoughts and experiences during one year while he is trying to live like in the old times.
• How is life as a reindeer-herding forest-Sami in Sweden today?
• What are the daily problems and future threats?
• How far is it possible to live like in the old times?
