(Kiruna Space Road)
Director, edit, script: Lisleotte Wjastedt

Kiruna – Rymdvägen is a documentary film project in collaboration with Littlebig Productions, Filmpool Nord, SVT, SFI and Norrlands läns landsting.

“Almost all my childhood memories are from this area, especially along Bromsgatan.
I do remember the daily routines. Every morning at five, my father got up and joined the current of workers on their way to the underground. Two hours later we children got up and formed our own current on the way to The Company School. Every night the houses shuddered from the explosions below. ”
The story is told on two levels, the documentary level of what goes on today which ends when the houses are being torn down. The animated part is about the memories of childhood in the area. The spreading cracks on the surface go through the story as a heartbeat.

The Fire

THE FIRE,

kortfilm, 10 min

en del av Kiruna Ortdrivaren

Filmen hade premiär på Göteborgs filmfestival 2017

Det brinner i gruvan i Kiruna! Filmaren Liselotte Wajstedt sitter som klistrad framför datorn och uppdaterar maniskt hjälpcenters sida. Hennes pojkvän är nere i den rökfyllda delen av gruvan och arbetar. Gastkramande och nervkittlande med en till synes oändlig åkning ner i de vindlande gruvgångarna.

Burn the drums

A FILM BY: LISELOTTE WAJSTEDT (©)2016
MUSIC: MOIVI
ORIGINAL TITLE: BRÄNN TRUMMORNA
DANCER: ÅSA LINDER
I samiska mytologin är det Sarakka som är den starkaste gudinnan. Hon är solens, eldens och hemmets gudinna.
Genom Reahpen kommer ljuset, det är genom den vi får bilderna, det är genom den vi kan se.

Det finns en ilska, desperation, rädsla i att förlora det vi en gång såg när det nya tar över.

Själv är jag en urban same. Den här filmen är en stilla dialog med dåtiden.

This is a video in process, can also be part of a larger context

Synopsis

Sápmi – the land of the Sámi, ranging across northernmost Scandinavia – is a breathtaking place. The Sámi culture has made great inroads in recent years in contemporary art and music. But behind these cultural triumphs are deep shadows. Shadows that no one in Sápmi talks about. A study by the Arctic University of Norway has found a higher degree of emotional, physical and sexual violence among the Sámi people than in the rest of Nordic society. The film Silence in Sápmi aims to investigate why so many young Sámi are so troubled. What is behind the violence, the suicides and the mental health problems of youth in Sápmi?.
