On a cold day in Northern Norway I got invited to follow a Sami family (the indigenous people inhabiting the Arctic area of Sápmi, which today encompasses parts of far northern Sweden, Norway, Finland, the Kola Peninsula of Russia, and the border area between south and middle Sweden and Norway.) on their daily route in the reindeer-business. After experiencing perhaps the most beautiful and coldest sunrise I have ever seen, I was lucky to get some amazing lights & colors. This shortfilm is a piece for showing you guys just a little bit how they work and live, but most of all show the beautiful environment they live in, and how they use the rough climate and landscapes to their advantage.
