Trambo (Finland | 2014, 3 min)

Directed by: Marja Helander


Trambo with Marja Helander

The short film Trambo is an absurd self-portrait of me (the director): an indigenous Sámi woman wandering on a snowy mountain. I am dragging a big trampoline, a burden I hope will bring a bit of joy to the monotonous journey of life. The trampoline is a reference to the modern era, in contradiction to the old traditional Sámi way of life. But it can also be seen as a prison or a wall that is hard to see through.
