Documentary Screening: Kaisa’s Enchanted Forest

kaisa_dokumentti

Join us for a special screening of the award winning documentary Kaisa’s Enchanted Forest on Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 2pm to 3:30pm at the Embassy of Finland.

A proud member of Finland’s indigenous Skolt Sami tribe, filmmaker Katia Gauriloff found footage of her grandmother Kaisa, a legendary storyteller and singer of le’udd epic ballads.

The poetic footage and newly created animation depicting the stories creates a moving portrait of a charismatic woman who stayed strong as WWII forced them to relocate to a part of Finland where they had to give up their reindeer-herding way of life.

The film tells a story of friendship and joining of destinies. The personal story of Robert Crottet and Kaisa is strongly intertwined with the fate of the Skolt Sámi during the war-time upheaval. As a result of the war the Skolt Sámi lost nearly everything. Robert Crottet acted as a spokesman for the Skolt Sámi in post-war Europe. His aim was to secure the future and way of life of Skolt Sámi.

No registration needed.

Do not miss the opportunity to see photographer Meeri Koutaniemi’s exhibition In the Land of Finndians from 11am to 4pm.
