Director’s Statement

Many older Samis left everything behind and became Swedish and I’ve always wondered; what happens to you if you cut all ties with your culture and history? And can you really become someone else?
Sameblod is a declaration of love to those who left and stayed –  told from Elle Marja’s perspective. I wanted to make a film where we see the Sámi society from within, a film where we experience this dark part of Swedish colonial history in a physical way. A film with yoik and blood.
