Into the Land of Ice and Fire

24th TDF: International Premiere

The film is inspired by the contemporary life of the indigenous people inhabiting the European arctic region, the Sámi. Two parallel stories gradually unfold the everyday life of two very different persons: 86-year-old Sara and Mihka, a seven-year-old Sámi boy, both living in Guovdageaidnu, in the middle of the Norwegian arctic tundra.
