Ellos Eatnu – Let the River Flow

A decision from the Norwegian government inspires a whole generation of young Sámi and supporters to rise up. That summer of ‘79, Ester had just moved to the area in northern Norway to teach at a primary school. Ester is also Sámi, but is ashamed of her origins and tries to conceal this any way she can. Only when her cousin Mikkhal takes her to a camp by the Alta River, where people are demonstrating against the construction of a dam, does Ester learn how the fight for the river is also a rebellion against the brutal discrimination against her people. Mikkhal and some other Sámi decide to travel to Oslo to go on hunger strike in front of parliament, and it is time for Ester to take a stand.

Based on true events, this drama by director Ole Giaever sketches the moving portrait of an indigenous people's struggle for survival.
