June 2, 2008 • Philip BurgessBlog

Sami film maker Nils Gaup’s movie, The Kautokeino Rebellion has been a huge success in Norway, with a total audience of over 400,000. International success may also be around the corner as it has already been sold to 20 countries.   The film was shown for the first time in Finland at the Nightless Night Festival in Inari, Finland, making a great impact on the audience. The Kautokeino Rebellion will open the Sodankyla Midnight Sun Film Festival in Finland on June 11th and the rest of Finland in August. With its introduction to Finland, Helsingin Sanomat carried an interesting piece about the film and its background.
