A multiple award winner and hit at festivals including Toronto, Sundance and Venice, this is the moving story of a Sámi girl who severs ties with her family and her Arctic culture. Growing up in 1930s Sweden when the indigenous Sámi people were discriminated against, 14-year-old Elle is bright and ambitious but is stymied. When she is forced to endure race biology examinations, she decides to take on a new identity. Lene Cecilia Sparrok is astonishing in this powerful debut by Amanda Kernell.
