Pathfinder (Nils Gaup  |  Norway  |  1987  |  15)

The first film to be made within the Sami community in Northern Scandinavia, this Oscar-nominated, epic adventure story is about a young boy’s attempts to bring justice to the men that murdered his family. Based on one of the few surviving Lapp legends (the director, Nils Gaup, himself a Lapp, heard it from his own grandfather), ‘Pathfinder’ is a thrilling coming-of-age tale about the timeless struggle between good and evil.

This screening was introduced with traditional Scandinavian music from Marit Falt.
