Sameblod is a film about Elle-Marja who goes to indigenous state school and decides to break with her Sami heritage and become Swedish.
It is also the story of Sweden’s colonial history, about homeland and exclusion, heroism and rebellion, shame and guilt. A movie that is upsetting yet touching and calls for important reflections on the writing of individual and national histories.

After the screening, there will be a Q&A with Patricia Fjellgren (above), Assistant Director and Chair of the Sami Film Workers’ Association. Chair: Jenny Jansdotter.
