Event description

HippFest Commission

This epic-scaled romantic drama tells the story of Laila, separated as a baby from her Norwegian parents and raised amongst the nomadic Sami people. Returned to her birth family Laila grows to maturity, torn between the Christian settlers and the reindeer-herding community who raised her as one of their own.

Director Schnéevoigt (cinematographer on a number of Carl Dreyer films including The Parson’s Widow), captures the imposing vastness of the stunning snow and ice landscape, the fascinating way of life of a still beleaguered minority people, and the intimate narrative of a father who sacrifices his own happiness for that of his daughter.

HippFest is delighted to present the world premiere of a new commission for award-winning Norwegian/Scottish folk duo Marit and Rona who have created a new score marrying the music of the remote landscapes and indigenous peoples of their respective homes.
