Eatnanvuloš lotit – Maan sisällä linnut – Birds in the Earth

Duration: 11 minutes

Marja Helander's short film, based on dance, tells its story through the performance by two young Sámi ballet students. It’s about the nature in Sápmi, the youth and the dance. It also looks at deeper questions about the ownership of Sámi land and the Sámi’s right in today’s Finland, where the contradiction between nature and the modern lifestyle is blurred with humour.
