One of three films nominated for the European Parliament’s Lux Prize, Amanda Kernell’s powerful feature debut is a vibrant coming of age drama set in 1930’s Sweden. Elle, a reindeer herding Sami teenager is forcibly removed from her family and sent to a state boarding school. Exposed to the racism of the school and facing a society rife with prejudice and discrimination, Elle is forced to choose between remaining with her people or pursuing the education and opportunities otherwise denied her.
