"Kor e mine čorva?" (2020)
I have heard my uncle’s stories since childhood, and one of his many stories inspired me to document.
The story is from my uncle’s childhood, when he was sent to Hammerfest hospital as a child, all alone, and had to stay there for four months. The result is that he switches his language from Sámi to Norwegian.
This is a current documentary as it is about Norwegianisation.

"Mii" (2020)
This short documentary shows the love between generations. The film is about how a family solves a dramatic situation together and how luohti solves problems. The young doctor Máret Lájlá Nedrejord tries to help her grandmother and grandfather. She uses her traditional knowledge to strengthen her grandparents soul and their mental well-being. Her grandmother Johanas-Elle has had two strokes and lost the ability to speak. Her grandfather Káre-Máhtte has dementia and often reminisces about the time when he was the top reindeer herder. The film shows the power of luohti and how memories resurface.
