Sámi nieida jojk is a documentary roadmovie into Sápmi. Armed in a Kolt and with a summer’s course in the lingo she is determined to take her place among the people she belongs to. In spite of being Sami herself, she has stood outside the Sami community, bereft of the language and other attributes of the culture. It’s an exciting trip, filled with expectations of new and fulfilling experiences, but the hovering fear of rejection and alienation lurks around the corner. This strong story is portrayed through humoristic documentary narration, imaginative animation and musical editing. How much a Sami can you be living in the city and without reindeers? Will she be accepted in Sameland?

The Fire


10 min

A part of the feature documentary film project KIRUNA ORTDRIVAREN

One day in June 2016 it began to burn in the mine in Kiruna. My partner is working at the bottom of the mine and can not get up. His teams have been evacuated to a collection point. If the situation worsens they should seek shelter in the rescue chambers, there are no such deployment in the mine but they can only accommodate eight people each.
During the day I sit glued to my computer where the news update mode. I have contact with my partner over the phone. I experience a heart-stopping thriller.
Emergency services can not get down to put the fire out before it is too much smoke in the aisle


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.

– Maja Kekonius
