Sami Blood Encore Screening
By popular demand, the Zinema 2 and the Sami Cultural Center of North America hold a special encore screening of Sami Blood. This award-winning film has played festivals around the world, inspiring discussions about cultural assimilation and other indigenous issues.
A 14-year-old girl (Lene Cecilia Sparrok) belonging to the Sami (a Scandinavian ethnic minority) is subjected to racism and eugenic scrutiny in the 1930’s when she is removed from her family and sent to a state-run school that aims to reeducate her into Swedish culture. She must soon choose between new academic opportunities or staying true to her cultural identity, all while weathering the storms of adolescence.
