8 seasons – 8 films

Eight short films about the Sami seasons will be created by the Hijven association in Tärnaby. The aim of this project is to spread knowledge about traditional and modern Sami life and the feelings that the eight seasons represent. Focus will be on Sami artistic expressions like joik, dance, painting, animation, handicraft, design etc.

Read an interview with Oskar Östergren about his project.
