Life under the Arctic Sky

Robin Sip,  Netherlands, Taiwan, USA 2016 42'

Film Presentation:
This documentary takes the viewerto a breathtaking journey two hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle, near the jagged tips of Norway's crown, the sun does not set for weeks on end during the summer months, and the midnight sun bounces off fields of midsummer snow. Here is the Sami's homeland, spread across northern Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia. The Sami are some of Europe’s last indigenous peoples, reindeer herders who for thousands of years have lived a nomadic lifestyle in the Arctic wilderness. For them, the notion of time is untethered from the cycles of the sun and is tied instead to something far more important: the movement of the reindeer.
