BENEATH THE SURFACE

Alexander Irvine-Cox
NO UK 2022    90'
⚬ Society ⚬ Crime & Investigative 

Synopsis

A tip-off in 2014 enabled a group of journalists to gain access to silenced stories of abuse from indigenous Sámi women, men and children. Generations of negligence and suffering are investigated through recovered evidence and unseen archival footage. At court, the community stands up to Norwegian authorities, revealing racial sub-order and the meaning of generational trauma. What unfolds is a fight to break a cycle of racial subordination and injustice. One community’s struggles to achieve lasting change and a legacy of safety for future generations.
