I use the samish traditional dress in different hypothetical situations and contexts. How will it be to wear it, will I find it comfortable? This movie is a part of a jojk, it is my jojk without the singing. The jojk is traditionally used to remember or dedicate something to something or someone.
A jojk, can be about longing. I have been denied to be a sami, my language has been taken away, aswell as my traditional costume and my culture. I want to recapture lost knowledge and culture.

Reindeers dance on a snowy field in Nothern Sweden, in December,
with 25 degrees below zero, on the day that the tsunami hits Thailand.
This was the director’s first encounter with reindeers, and the film
is a result of her feelings about the meeting
