The Tundra Tale
At the outermost edge of Europe, 150 kilometers away from the nearest road lies the picturesque Sami village of Krasnoschchelye. It is the ancestral home of Alexandra Artieva and her family, traditional tundra reindeer herders. But they have a problem, their life sustaining tundra is also rich in minerals and other resources.
Alexandra, a member of the newly formed Sami parliament in Russia, struggles to save her village and culture from the aggressively encroaching mining and other business ventures which are destroying her beloved tundra. 13,000 Sami villages have already perished. Alexandra and her modest group face government and big business to save their reindeer lands, their home and traditions. 52 minutes www.lichtblick-film.com
