Swedish director Gunilla Bresky presents her new documentary film about Nils-Aslak Valkeapää (1943-2001), the most diverse and famous Sámi artist who ever lived. He was born into a family of traditional reindeer herders, but he chose to become an artist as he could not kill reindeers.
He was a poet, a painter, a yoiker, a composer, and a photographer. He published books, he made records, ha had concerts all over the world, he won prizes. He had great success in everything he did, but one day he was in a terrible accident…
Gunilla will show unique clips from her research and also present the idea of the film.
