SAMI BLOOD
SAMEBLOD
2016, Nordisk Film AB, 110 min, Sweden/Norway/Denmark, Dir: Amanda Kernell

Fourteen -year-old Elle Marja (talented newcomer Lene Cecilia Sparrok) is a reindeer-herding Sámi girl growing up in the 1930s. Exposed to the era’s racial biology examinations at her boarding school, she starts dreaming of another life - but to achieve it, she will have to break all ties with her family and culture. “A moving, classically rendered coming-of-age tale set against the scarring social prejudices of the 1930s, this handsome debut feature from Swedish- Sámi writer-director Amanda Kernell robustly blends adolescent fears that resonate across borders and generations with a fascinatingly specific, rarely depicted cultural context.” - Guy Lodge, Variety.


POSSESSED
1931, Warner Bros., 76 min, USA, Dir: Clarence Brown

Factory worker Joan Crawford becomes the mistress of a high-powered attorney running for political office (Clark Gable) in this pre-Code classic of sex, Depression-era politics and star chemistry. Crawford's role set the tone for her many movies to come in which she would play working girls on the rise. In this, their third film together, Crawford and Gable clicked onscreen with audiences and each other, engaging in a passionate affair that was widely gossiped about on the MGM lot.
