Written & Directed by: Amanda Kernell
Starring: Lene Cecilia Sparrok, Hanna Alström & Anders Berg

Elle Marja is a reindeer-breeding Sámi girl in 1930s Sweden. Exposed to racism and race biology examinations at her boarding school, she starts dreaming of another life.

In the Washington Post, Michael O'Sullivan writes: "SAMI BLOOD is a beautiful, haunting film, anchored by a startlingly accomplished lead performance." In Variety, Guy Lodge raves: "SAMI BLOOD robustly blends adolescent fears that resonate across borders and generations with a fascinatingly specific, rarely depicted cultural context: Sweden’s colonial oppression of the indigenous Sámi folk." And in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Colin Covert declares: "Psychologically deep and emotionally vivid, it's a complex trip through personal and national history." Rotten Tomatoes Score: 95%
