Suddenly Sami

Free Film Screening
Cloquet Public Library ~ 320 14th Street, Cloquet
Monday, June 14 at 6:30 p.m.
SUDDENLY SAMI is a personal film about identity. During the director’s childhood and youth in Oslo, her mother never told her about her indigenous Sami background in the Arctic area of Norway. Why didn’t she? And how can the director suddenly become Sami in the middle of life? And does she really want to?
Directed by Ellen-Astri Lundby, an independent filmmaker and producer who has produced
and directed several short films, both fiction and documentaries. Her films usually have a humorous touch, even when dealing with serious topics.
Discussion and refreshments following the screening.
Sponsored by the Cloquet Public Library, the Sami Siida of North America,
Cloquet Sons of Norway Heimsyn Lodge #15 and Báiki: The International Saami Journal
