She recovered these priceless films from the ‘30s-’60s, shot by the Swiss writer Robert Crottet, who lived with Kaisa in the ‘30s, and Spanish photographer Enrique Méndez. The footage and newly created animation depicting the stories creates a poetic, moving portrait of a charismatic woman who stayed strong as WWII forced them to leave their home lands forever. Kaisa’s Enchanted Forest, from director Katja Gauriloff, was awarded the Golden Dove award at DOK Leipzig in animated documentary category.

Suohpanterror plakátkiállítás és A számi fiatalok és a kulturális aktivizmus programsorozat

Young Sámis and cultural activism introduces the politically committed art of young Sámi artists and discusses the rights and situation of indigenous people in current society through arts. The newly emerged movement involving young Sámis in Sámiland wants to make their voice heard, raising issues of minority rights and anomalies in the Sámi politics of the Nordic countries.

Suohpanterror is one of the most visible groups speaking for Sámi rights. As a collective of Sámi artists working under a pseudonym, it has soon become a popular activist group characterised by its radical pop-art which is startling and thought-provoking at the same time. One of their members defines their work as “art-shaped politics”. 

Welcoming words by Cita Högnabba-Lumikero, Director of FinnAgora

Opening words by Petra Laiti, chair of Suoma Sámi Nuorat, the Finnish Sámi youth organization
