AUGUST 7 … SAMI BLOOD

Sami Blood

Sweden   1hr 50min   Drama  NR

A 14-year-old girl (Lene Cecilia Sparrok) belonging to the Sami people, a Scandinavian ethnic minority, is subjected to racism and eugenic scrutiny in the 1930s when she is removed from her family and sent to a state-run school that aims to reeducate her into Swedish culture. She must soon choose between new academic opportunities or staying true to her cultural identity, all while weathering the storms of adolescence.

“An eloquent coming-of-age drama set in 1930s Sweden that revolves around a spellbinding performance by young Lene Cecilia Sparrok.” – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
