Film «Älven min Vän» at an international film festival
The film «Älven min Vän» is part of Hannah Ambühl's master thesis and portrays four Sámi women who live along the Lule River in Sweden. The construction of 15 dams has changed their lives. What has remained is the deep bond between the women and the river.
