|FJÄRRAN MOT NORD (FAR TO THE NORTH) (Feature film)
(Orig. title) Fjärran mot Nord - By Emmy Abrahamson
Looking for a new start in life, the Swedish priest John Asker moves his family to a remote village in the far north of Sweden. His daughter Elisabet quickly realizes that there are two separate worlds in the village: that of the Swedes and that of the indigenous people, the Sami. With growing dismay she witnesses how the Sami are segregated and mistreated by the Swedes; in particular by her own father. In secrecy Elisabet starts meeting the Sami reindeer-herder Niillas. Though Asker has already promised her hand in marriage to one of the settlers in the village, Elisabet and Niillas fall in love. As Elisabet struggles between obeying the conventions of her society and following her love, everyone’s lives are forever changed and events hurdled into disastrous consequences.
